    Besides the obvious difference in deck size...Which mower will
    cut better the Exmark 32", 36" or the John Deere JX75. Thanks in advance for the input! JP

    Spalmer97,

    I can't speak for the eXmarks... but, I have a JX75. When bagging it will pack the contents so tight you can barely shake it out. Tall / Wet no problem.... Does a nice job, but the bag is to small.

    The mulching on the JX75 stinks IMHO. To get decent mulch performance I had to cut so often that I could barely follow a cut line to tell where I had been.

    I did not have the side discharge chute... can't say how that would have worked.

    In my area at close to or over $800 for the JX75... I would lean heavily towards an eXmark!!!!

    I assume the JD is a 21" mower? Anyway, this is a one sided question. The eXmark can't be beat when mulching. The cut of a 32" or 36" is awesome with or without the mulch kit.

    Yup... the JX75 is a 21"...

    Really should NOT be in there for comparison... but I suppose if you conisder what JD wants for a new one. It fits from a Price comparison standpoint... ;)

    I HAVE A TORO 32 AND IS GOOD BUT HAS ONE BLADE.i THINK THE EXMARK has two which would be better in my book.

    I can't comment on the Exmark but I do own a John Deere JX85 commercial 21" mower. This machine leaves a beautiful cut when you bag but as mentionned before, the bag is a bit too small. When you mulch the cut is decent but nothing compared to my Toro Proline 21". I just put on a side discharge kit for the Deere and it seems to work quite well. Hope this helps.
