Hello all i am new to your site and have a few questions . I have used the search option and all the info i am looking for is 3 to 4 years old and i am wanting updated info please . I am buying a new house with three acres to mow and looking at new mowers , i run a Grasshopper at my home in TN and i want something a little better . I am looking at the Scag with a 52" deck and 27hp Kohler .. Dixie Chopper 50" deck with the 27hp Genarac and the Exmark Lazer Z with the 52" deck and not sure about the powerplant .... I would like to know what will be my best option? I know these mowers may be a little overkill for 3 acres but i like good equipment that lasts for a long time and does a good fast job of my mowing chores ... as i said i have run a Grasshopper for 6 years and it has been a good unit i just dont feel it is as good of a mower as the three i am looking at , and it doesnt really have a real good power to deck ratio , not ditching them just think for the price there are better options .... Sorry for rambling on !!!
