    Ok guys I need help with deciding on a 2008 Exmark 60" Ultracut Advantage Series 25HP Kohler or 2008 Hustler Super Z 25HP Kawasaki motor. I will be doing a few commercial properties and have many hills to mow over. Which would you recommend? Thanks to all that reply.

    If cut quality means anything to you I would go Exmark UltraCut hands down. Its really no contest.

    I've got both.

    If speed is important to you, Hustler is the answer.

    If not, eXmark.

    The eXmark AS is slow by comparison but has more torque and a more controlled feel. It hard to argue with the reputation of the UltraCut.

    The only fair way to get an answer for this question is to target people who have 1 of each, like JIMQ, who operate them each under the same conditions. Otherwise its the same old Ford vs. Dodge vs. Chevy mine is better than yours crap:hammerhead:.

    You said you are doing hills maybe the hustler but the cut of the exmark is way better.

    I Would Go With A Ferris Is2000 25 Kaw With The 61" Deck, Mowes At 10 Mph With Good Cut. The Deck Is Attached To The Suspension, Really Nice Cut.

    Which dealer is going to give you better service? I have had Exmark mowers since they came out with the Z's and have good service until now. The dealer grew and now when I have an unfixable problem and bring it to them I have to take a number it will be about 2 weeks. So I searched and found a Hustler dealer closer and was very reluctant at first to buy anything but Exmark. With my new dealer if something happens to mine he lends free a demo unit till mine is fixed:weightlifter: His reply was he wants his demo unit back just as quickly as I want my mower back.... win win situation. :cool2: So ask questions about service.

    both have great service they will lend you a demo so there is no downtime for me, i would really like the exmark because of the quality of cut but just wondering if the 25hp kohhler would be enough for hills. Thanks.
