    Lesco and Bobcat and Toro, still like the Exmark, but it has me thinking now. Not sure what to pull the trigger on. :help:
    Finally got my fertilizer lawn flags/stakes. Any sites the have these in stock regularly, got mine from Lesco, where on b/o for 1.5 months.

    In my opinion there is no reason too buy a 44 inch rider.A 52 inch is a much better choice.
    If you do purchase a rider the suspension seat is worth every penny.
    Exmarks are great Mowers as are the others mention.
    I have a new Snapper 52 inch ZTR and a 36 inch Bobcat walk behind and I only use my Walk behind on steeper damp hills.
    One other problem with a small deck rider is the deck does not stick out as far and makes for a harder time mowing around trees.
    A 52 inch too me seemed too be the best all arpound mower.
    I cut a Church that has a big big Field.The 52 makes it doable.I have a guy that helps cut it with a 44 inch walkbehind and it takes him twice as long too do the field as it does me on my ZTR.Thats 2 hours into a little over 4 hours.

    52" hydro bunton (its old but still a beast, and a 32" exmark belt drive (old too, runs like a champ). Just bought a 48" hydro lesco.
