    Looking for a new ZTR mower and have it narrowed down to either the eXmark Quest or JD Z425, with a 48 inch deck. I'd appreciate any recommendation you all may have on one over the other as well as your thoughts on how each performs with a mulching kit. The Lawn is @ 1.25 acres and I am replaceing a eXmark 32 inch Metro that I have had for 10 years.

    The eXmark is @ $500 more than the John Deere and both are sold by the same dealer.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    I looked at both, and ended up with the Z425. Now traded on a Z820A, but that little mower was a beast. I'd definatley suggest it over the Quest. I think it's a better built machine, although they are both good and better than what you'll get at Home Depot or Lowes.
