    I have a 52" Exmark, well 2 actually with the Turf Tracer. Love them both, I'm sure you will too.

    Yep I think it's a little crazy for what you get. The major differences are hydros, clutch, deck, and tires

    Do not clean the air filter more often than recommended in the engine manual. Overservicing will cause more dirt to end up in your engine. Very nice mower!! I love it when they are all clean and shiny. Try to post an update on how it runs, cuts, etc. Good luck this season!

    In your pics the deck on the mower you bought looks pretty darn stout. What is the difference in the S series deck? You can put whatever tires you want on it for less than $200. If you watch your idle when you engage and disengage, the clutch should last plenty long. I'm guessing the S series still uses transaxles and not separate pumps and wheel motors. I think for 2k in difference you made a great decision. I just don't see that much more value in the S series mower.

    I think you'll get good service out of it...not the mower I'd want to hand over to a crew, but for an owner/operator who presumably isn't going to be beating the crap out of it, it should be fine.

    Correction lol I mean replacing the air filter sooner than needed. I am a FREAK about maintenance. Yes shiny is always good! And will do and good luck to you as well!

    Yes it is very stout. On the e series it comes with a series 2 deck(on exmark site and booklet it says that wrong) and the s series has a series 3 or 4 I believe. The difference is the deepness by about one inch with the series 2 being shallower. As far as the clutch there's like a 25 lbs difference so what you said is kind of what I figured. And I cannot remember the models but I want to say the e series pump model has the 2800 and the s series has the 3100 so the s still has separate pumps and motors, just a little more beefed up. And no I couldn't justify it other than looks because if taller wider tires and believe it or not the sales guys talked me out of the s series from day one

    No I totally agree with that and I have two guys that work with me in the summer and still I will be the only one operating it because that makes a huge difference in longevity of expensive components in my opinion lol
