    I wonder if some chevron tires would help? I heard chevron tires are the way to go on ztr's in general.

    Chevron tires are good in certain situations. But if you have alot of residential the lugs can tear up the ground if you're in a hurry. I cut a wet field the other day and those tires got me out of there versus being stuck in the mud.

    Unfortunately I will not buy another exmark either even though I have the best dealer. I really want the cheetah for its nice ride I think. I dont know if the turf tiger rides better than the cheetah, but i will demo and find out. Its hard to find time to demo all these machines.

    Thats a good price. They go for around 9999 here although I saw a dealer once pushing one for about $1,500 less than that. Couldn't believe my ears.

    IMHO exmark has one of the best cuts. But I much prefer scag mowers. The velocity deck has a good cut but when you put a mulch plate on it the dust comes straight out the front and all over you. There's so much airflow with the velocity that it has to go somewhere. I just wish it had a similar deck to the exmark (much better airflow IMHO) but with the scag bullet proof mower over it.

    I have the Cheetah for the second time now, loaner while mower is in shop getting warranty repairs.. The first time I demoed right when they came out. the suspension doesn't seem to benefit much over just a susp seat on the TT. Also don't like having to lean out over the tank to see the trim side of deck, and not being able to access outside blade bolts on the top with the air gun.
