    Today wrapped up demos on four different machines. I tested:
    • Hustler's Super Z Diesel 72" with Cat 35 HP engine
    • Exmark's Lazer Z XS 72" with Kubota 25HP engine
    • Gravely's 260Z 60" with Daihatsu 27HP engine
    • Kubota's ZD28 72" with Kubota 28HP engine

    and my perfect mower is:

    One with the smooth handling and excellent control responsiveness of the Hustler; the finish cut quality of the Exmark Triton deck; the 28HP engine, articulating front axle option and integral jack from the Kubota ZD; the big 15 inch front wheels and of course the price point of the Gravley.

    Not too much to ask for huh? :laugh: While they all handled differently in my test, they all did really well. Any will last forever in my application. I think I'm getting a headache. I may have to sleep a few nights before making a final decision...
