    Want to upgrade to the JD M653 or the eXmark Lazer Z52. Drove Toro, LZ, Grass Hopper and Deere at Louisville this past weekend. Anyone have some pros or cons on these two models ? Thanks.

    The Deere dealer offered $550.00 more in trade then the Toro dealer. Leaning that way right now. The Toro guy was less then honest with me.

    Yea, weve had to deal with Toro cust. service. THEY ARE TERRIBLE. JD backs their product 200000000%.<br>Are you looking at the outfront, or midmount?<p>----------<br>-Grasscape Mgmt.<br>Http://sites.netscape.net/grasscapeinc/homepage

    I demoed the deere and the lazer hp. Personal preference-- I am more impressed with the Exmark ZTR units. In fact I own two. <p>Believe me, I understand about getting more money back at trade in time. But what do you really want to get next? I guess what I am really trying to say is this: will another $500 in trade be worth it by the time you have sat for 1,000 hours in the seat of that new shiny machine which was your second pick? Get which ever one you like better.<p>gus

    Go with Exmark hands down. They still make their mower at their OWN factory. Yes, they have been purchased by Toro, but they still use their on research & employees to build their machines. Toro uses the best of Exmark on their machines.
