    Kubota ZD21 60" is what we have now. Its nice and a diesel. Thinking about getting a Exmark 72" or Walker 72". But i still like the Kubota. Just not satisfied with the dealer

    If those are your 4 choices then I'd say it's a toss up between the John Deere and the Toro. Both are excellent machines with great reputations. It will have to come down to your personal preferance. DEMO both and see which you like best.

    I was trying to figure out when Honda got back into the riding mower business, and now has a Z mower, lol.

    New Horizons: you are debating between an exmark 72" and a Walker 72"??? those are night and day different machines.

    Yes I understand that. Why you ask? The Walker has mower decks that are interchangable. So I could get one mower and have the 60" and 72 " decks save trailer space and money on mowers. I like the Exmarks better though.
