    I'm looking at Ferris, Exmark, Walker, Lesco. Both riding and walk behind. Are there any polls on rating's? Any help is appreciated.

    Ferris # 1 for ride quality due to the IS ,#3 in cut.
    Exmark, ride depends on the seat and #2 in cut.
    Walker depends on seat as well and #1 in cut.
    Lesco I am not to sure of but I have heard that they are equivilant to a cub cadet.

    These are just my humble opinions. I think the best way for you to figure out what you want is to demo them (try'em before you buy'em).

    From what I've seen, I like Lesco better then the other 3 (not a fan of exmark just too much $$$$). Lesco makes nice w/b's and the prices are really good compared to others. Lesco is running some good deals right now as well as some good financing.

    What brand have you been using for 20 years? These are all good mowers!

    i've got a Walker GHS and i wouldn't trade it for all the walk behind mowers in the world. They are more money, but you can get more work done in a day, so i guess you have to decide which u need by how much work u have to do
