    Be careful where you post what, or you will find them all moved when you check back.

    There are several different sections on this message board.

    I would put this thread in Commercial Lawn Care section (where it will probobly be shortly anyway)

    It'll just make the mods job a little bit easier.

    This section is more for business/office related issues (accounting, marketing, employee relations, payroll, taxes, contracts, etc.)

    Hope this helps keep you from getting abused by some of the meanies around here! :p

    Good Luck Man!

    Toro/Exmark (I can't remember which company makes them all, I can't keep up with all the buyouts and takeovers in the industry)

    That would be my choice out of the bunch you listed. Scag after that.

    I've had great luck with ExMarks, and most of the guys I know that run them have nothing bad to say either.

    Good running machince if its maintained and cared for properly.

    Good Luck!

    I dont understand your poll. Are you comparing Gravely with Crapsmen and Walker with Scag?

    I can hardly beleive you left Dixie Chopper off the list. 550 nours and it hasn't been back to the dealer or broken down. Eric "ELM" Erikson used to get thousands of hours out of his with no breakdowns.
