    Hey,believe it or not still not done cutting Dec 4th central jersey.
    I have a 07 Toro 60 25hp small pump machine 8 mph,thinking of getting
    a 04 to 06 Exmark 60 27hp
    with the ultra cut deck,i used one for 2 weeks in the summer and didn't
    want to go back to my Toro,the Exmark was much faster & cut better i think the 6 in high ultra cut deck along with the 27hp in the prefect combo.what are your thoughts,also if taken care of do you think you can get 4000 to 5000
    hours from the Exmark.?

    2000-3000 hrs are the norm. They can last for 10,000 hrs by replacing everything. With downtime and repairs high hour equipment can get expensive.
