OK, it is still too wet to mow, so I'm thinking of all these things to post. Putting aside all prejudices regarding past or present performance, experience, etc., which ZTR do you think is, simply, the best looking? I own a Gravely, but even if I didn't, I think they would get my vote. I think the engine cowling is cool looking, giving a rakish touch to the design, and I love the red color with the black (hotter than hell) seats. When mine is shined up, with a bit of tire black and Armor-all on the black tanks and seat, it is one sharp looking mower. I think Dixie Choppers are too utilitarian looking. Grasshoppers are apparently good mowers, I know a couple of people around here who run them, but whoever came up with that color choice???? Skag, in my opinion, runs a close second as far as ugly color. I haven't seen a newer Exmark, because no one locally runs them, that I'm aware of, so I can't say about them. Again, before I hear about it. This has nothing whatsoever to do with performance, only aesthetics.
