    3 seasons ago I purchased a Dixie chopper (iron eagle) was told at the time it was a entry level commercial grade mower- well found out last year when I took it in for regular maint that it is considered a residential mower.. (my mistake and I don't want to make it again). So I am in the market now for a commercial mower - I have been to 2 places now and these sales guys have nothing but good things to say about the mower they are trying to sell me... but when I go on the internet to research, I am finding that owners of the machines that I am looking are not necessarily on the same page... Here is what I am looking for and have looked at - your advise is appreciated.....

    looking at commercial line - 52" max (however found a 60" exmark)- mulching kit option (and possibly bagger)

    I have priced out a Gravely pro-turn 152-24hp - kaw with suspension seat and a Exmark LZX29KA606SS Lazer Z Series. 29HP Kaw 60" Ultra Cut Series 6 with suspension seat

    any advise? - any other machine you would recommend?

    Do you need new? Idk if you have any experience with walkers or not, but the 52" mulch/rear discharge deck on the mbs is supposed to be great. I was just speaking with another user on here about them. The thread is most likely still on the first or second page.

    who has the better dealer support? i dont have any experience with the gravelys but you would not be disappointed with a lazer z X series mower they are top notch. might want to grab the ultra vac with the purchase if you can work it in it is well worth the money for spring and fall clean ups

    no - don't want a walk behind or stand up one.

    No not a walk behind. A walker, it's a brand of mower

    LOL, I take it you're new to a lot of this.

    Like posted above, a Walker is a brand of machine. Not my cup o tea at all, but lots of guys like 'em-
