Let's see. An Exmark or a Viper; A truck or a Volkswaggon.

Fireman is correct, made by MTD and we know what that means. My Lesco tried to sell me one when I bought my Great Danes, great choice. Exmark v/s Lesco mowers: Exmark.................Exmark v/s Great Dane, now that's another story!

It's like comparing a dodge to a diahatsu.... I used to run a lesco w/b when I worked for a 5 years ago. It wasn't too bad but it seems like the new ones have gotten worse. I've run the viper also and they sit so high and are very bumpy. We currently run exmark. So there's my vote too!!

Exmark KICKS A

My Exmark is awesome. At first I had a problem with the seat cut off switch, but that was fixed and I have never had a problem yet. And the dealer gave me a loaner to use while mine was in the shop, and just to give you and idea about pricing. I paid $6300 (includes tax) for my 99 Exmark Lazer Zhp 48" it was 3 months old and had 48 hours on it, and the warranty came with it.

I have tried them both in the past. I bought an Exmark!! Exmark is a far better piece of equipment. Lesco may be cheaper but you will pay eventually.
