I'm nit to worried about the price of parts I want something that will leave nice stripes along with a good ride. I am buying new so I will have a warranty anyways.

Toro Z master with a suspension seat end 3D isolators rides real good not to mention the Turboforce deck is one of the best.

Why hasnt anyone said ExMark?!? I've used every major brand, and ExMark IS THE BEST!!! Look at the Vantage. It's a great stand-on.

You really cant go wrong with any of the major brands that are out there. It will all come down to you demo'ing all the units you like in your price range, and seeing which you like best. And then also seeing which dealer has better service and parts availablity

I have owned, operated or demoed almost every major brand over the past 18+ years. I will save you a bunch of time. Demo these brands Scag, Deere, Kubota, Gravely and Ferris. All these companies now have decks that perform well in all conditions. For the best ride you really need to demo the Gravely 400 series and Ferris 3100.
