    I think it really depends on what your typical property is like. All the mowers you mentioned are good. But, they are all good in different ways.

    I mow mostly small residentials (5 to 8K sq ft). I usually have multiples on one street. A JD Quik Trak 48 (just like the Great Dane) works great.

    If I was bagging everything, I would definitely go with a Walker. And if I mowed some serious slopes regularly, I would stick to walk behinds of some kind...(lots of LCO's will probably disagree with that.) Or if I mowed big wide open acreages...a mid mount Z with a big deck would be my choice.
