    Well exmark doesnt make a 61" deck so its actually a 60" aswell. Any other info on these mowers? Motor size on each, year manufactured? Without a whole lot of information, I would go with the deere. It most likely has the 7 Iron deck which is great, and it has less hours than the exmark.

    I'd go with the other one man, a couple hours hear and there won't matter. The other one looks a little better maintained.
