    I recently looked through a turf magazine, and was amazed at the numerous brands of mowers out there. It seems there are easily 15 brands of ZTR mowers. I am not that familiar with many of them, and they all look very similar. I understand each person has their own preferences concerning each mower, but overall, what is the general perception of most of these brands. For example, which brands are the "Bentleys", which are the "Mercedes" and which are the "Fords"?
