Exmark 30 inch mower

Anyone got the Exmark 30 that could post a small review about it. How does it bag, stripe, mulch and so on. I looked at them at the dealer today and they look good but would like to hear some reviews. Cut quality pics would be great or even a vid review. Sorry I posted this earlier on accident in the Commercial landscaping section.

Great mower for dry grass. Wet grass not so good. Mulching? Awaiting the mulch kit but without, not so good. Mulching dry 1/3 blade cut fine but more than that, again, not so good. Excels at dry bagging or S/D. Love the way it maneuver's, like a 21. Gas consumption seems high but we have been mowing very thick and wet cool season grasses.

Take it easy on the other guy, he was just trying to say try to search for a subject before starting a new thread.

Let me help you on new releases. Don't be the r and d for them. Wait and let them work the bugs out. Ask that question next year. I just saved you 1700 and countless hours of downtime.

Bad on hills, clogs easy. Seems to do a lot but nothing real well. I used one all day and it went through a lot of gas. When I emptied the bag I had to shake the mower out to get the blades to start up again. It is useful but not real easy to maneuver. Seems to be that the way the blades engage is weak. It cut okay but not great.

Thus far this is one of the rougher reviews.

As of yet I have not demo'ed one. I just have last years TimeMaster 30 with but I'm running TurfMaster blades.

How fast is fast at top speed...? A jog or brisk walk...?
