want to get one and want to know what's best
if there's other's let me know
Gravely and Lastec are 2 more very nice out fronts.
Few have tried the brand new Walker Super B, so if this poll is taken 5 years from now, the outcome would be a lot different.
We have been a Exmark dealer for almost two years. We have sold near 20 Front Runners
our customers absolutly love them. Four of them that I know of have Grasshopper and now would take the Front Runner any day of the week. Better cut with the Ultra cut deck,better traction,and very reliable unit. Top notch unit I cant beleave they are not talked about more often.
How does the height adjustment work on the frontrunner---do you just raise/lower the deck until the dial is reading where you want it and it stays there, or is there a pin or stopper that you set (like most midmounts)
In my opinion the best setup for a frontmount is an even weight match between the front deck and the motor out back---this allows the machine the hold a side slope even better than a conventional midmount.
Yes the gauge is on the left side ontop of deck, and adjust to the height you wont.It does stay where you leave it.

The only front cuts I see are the grasshopper and Encore! I have tried both of them and for what you get I would go with encore!
We now have a "Fleet" of three Grasshopper outfronts,
the newest being a newly aquired, lightly used 722D
Kubota L/C Diesel!
I love the "powerfold deck" for changing blades easily.
Our first two Grasshoppers (Kubota L/C Gas) have provided a combined 25 years of service, and they both still run and mow great!
