    I WANT TO GET A 6' FINISH MOWER FOR MY TRACTOR SERVICE.
    I KINDA LIKE THE WOODS MODEL BUT THE BUSH HOG BRAND LOOKS GOOD TOO.
    OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS ON OTHER BRANDS.
    WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE?

    From past personal experience I say stay clear of any Bush Hog implements. I don't know what they are like now but I know they were some sorry junk that only saved a few hundred.

    The best thing usually is to go with the OEM deck. If not get brand name stuff.

    What kind, size tractor.
    I had a Land Pride Air Tunnel. Liked it a lot.
    Bought it new. Sold it when we got the Z-Master.

    Woods make very good heavy duty equipment. I delivered a tractor with Woods finishing mower to the guy about 2 weeks ago. I played with it at his new property in some pretty tuff grass. It did a great job.

    Progressive is the best I have found by far. I use them on a sod farm.

    I will give the nod to Woods, also. Some friends of mine own a funeral home. We mowed the big lawn for several years using a Yanmar Diesel Tractor with a Woods RM-59 mower. I can put it best by saying, tough tractor, tough mower. Never a problem with either of them.

    I had the Woods 7200 and I loved it. Sold it to my cousin when I bought the Z. It blows all the clippings out the back nice and even.
