    Well my dealer sells all three and has a lot of billy goats left that are new, I am finally demoting my Ferris to a spare next year, after two engines and 20 years of hard abuse with 3 commericail owners it is time to retire this beast.

    There are pros and cons to all IMO

    Exmark - I currently have one exmark and love the mower.

    Pros Stripes great, Takes abuse, Has never given me any big problems, and is powered by a KAWASAKI:)

    Cons- Cost

    Billy Goat - I have never owned a billy goat mower before but l think that there vacs seem great,it is much more affordable then exmark:) and it had a cup holder:):laugh:

    Cons - Discontinued so harder to get parts, only 10.5 hp Briggs and the gas tank is way to small IMO.


    Cub Cadet- I have never owned a cubcadetbut have herd good and bad things about them, the dealer says it would be fine for me since I have not that many accounts.

    Pros- Affordable and light weight

    Cons - Small front tires, Smaller engine 10 hp Briggs


    I currently have 5 regular accounts that I need a 32 for and 3 part timers

    Sorry for the long thread -Ryan-

    Do you plan on keeping 10 accounts? Dont buy the bg based on not getting any parts for it. All honesty, buy the better quality now. It might cost a little bit extra now but 15yr from now you'll be so far ahead it wont be funny.

    I wouldn't do the BG because it is discontinued and there is a reason for that. The Cub Cadet is homeowner grade isn't it? Besides that is a motor I personaly wouldn't choose since it is only a 10hp. The exmark is a good choice. Have you looked a slightly used one. I would also consider toro, and deere because of the decks.

    I like exmarks but i dont really have many gated yards to mow, I agree about the cub having a small engine. If I get another exmark I will mostlikely get it used, my dealer sells only deere riders and ztrs no Walk Behinds same with toro

    I would go for the Exmark. I have the Exmark Metro 32" and it's a great machine.
