    Look at dealer support, you may also get a good deal on last years model after the new year

    Snapper pro is going to be the cheapest and get the most. Toro has pretty good deals on the z400's here and I don't have a exmark dealer near me.

    I was looking at a snapper ztr about a month ago. Talked to one of the salesman for about 30 minutes on all the different models they had. That might be my choice.
