    not ran any or looked at them , but can say from my 8 years experience doing this and reading here the general opinion is kawasaki makes a great motor . so if they run kawasakis its a great start

    not built like exmark but if it light commercial work you should be okay but if you are going to run all day get a exmark or scag commercial mower

    theyre hand helds are exceptional, saw some of the commercials look pretty sturdy but when i saw a scag it looked built like a tank

    They're handhelds are good enough that I wouldn't be scared to give their mowers a try. I never see commercial guys around here run them, but we just recently picked up a good dealer for husky stuff.

    Speaking of that the stihl dealer here is very stuck up, but my trail saw and motor dealer are very friendly

    Last year we purchaced a Husqvarna ZTR, 52 inch deck with a 23hp vanguard motor and triple bagger. Honestly, I would definetley reccomend that you do not buy their ZTR's. We have had so many problems including belts, loss of hydro steering, clogging constantly when wet, and overall design of the mower. Also, the tunnel ram deck that they advertise is so good sucks when the grass is wet. All the grass does is get stuck there. Finally, the warranty that they say is the best in the business because it is five years is a lie. It may be five years but we have yet to have a repair done that was even partially covered under warranty. Overall, I am not impressed with Husqvarnas linr of ZTR's at all and I would not reccommend getting one. For the 2010 season we will be replacing it with a walker.:cool2:
