    Do you already have one? What is your best dealer in your area as far as customer service? Get demos on many different brands and find what you like and what works best for YOU.

    I'm always seeing you asking general opinions on the various makers. I don't have a problem with it at all, heck I read up on these threads because I will be buying a mower this spring. Yet, you need to study your dealers and which one you want to do business with. Would I be considering a Wright if my dealer didn't sell them... probably not. Find the dealer then study their products and determind which is best for you.

    Go with Toro Z-Master or Exmark you will get better service in the long run.

    I think that the service does not necessarily come from a brand more than it comes from a dealer.

    I am sure some brands may be harder on warranty issues, just like cars, motorcycles, etc, though.......

    I have 152z, 23 kawi, since last Feb, best buy for me. The cut is very nice especially added home-mde rubber striping. I got it very low price that couldn
    't pass. Super easy to take care and maintain. If you want to spend like 7-8k, go with Toro Turboforce, they are sharp and no mistake on the cut.

    I bought a 44z last year. Fantastic build quality, and the cut looks great (at least to my untrained eyes). At first I was reluctant to even look at the gravelys, instead focusing on scag, exmark, toro, etc etc. But once I really looked, I realized that the gravelys were just as good.

    I currently run the mulch kit and the striping kit. The mulch kit, which includes baffles, seems to do a great job, and I have almost no buildup under the deck, even with mowing damp grass.
