    My best advice to you is to demo all of these and find out what suites you the best. All of the ones you mentioned are top notch brands and cut great. Something I might like you may hate so it boils down to what works best for you.

    hey thanks for the advice........ i tried the super b at the store on their lawn for about 2 min it handled really well and was fast....... it wasnt enough time to really see if it was the right mower for me...... but the price they gave me was unreal...... i traded in a ferris 48 sd.... i paid 2300 for it at the start of the year and on a trade they gave me 2600 for it and the walker listed at 10600 or somethig like that................. with taxes and everything i got it for $7900 i hope it works out.......

    Good luck with it, the super b looks to be a nice machine. Just so you know the 27/60 super b sells for about $8000---by all appearances the dealer tried to confuse you with the list price and actually gave you very little for your walk behind. Hopefully some super b owners can chime in with what they paid but walker definitely had a promotion going on for them. $7995 + 6% tax (that would be in pa anyway) = $8474.70 = $574.70 trade in.

    Demo them first, then make your choice. When I bought my Scorpion, I demoed the following mowers.
    -Exmark Lazer HP 46"
    -Everride Hornet 52"
    -Everride Scorpion FX 48"
    -Wright Stander 42"
    -Toro Time Cutter Z
    -Everride Scorpion 52"

    My choice was the Scorpion 52" after all my tests. It fit my operation the best.

    I think they all have their place and it depends on what you want......

    The super B is more of a full size ZTR. To be honest, i'd look at something in an exmark or scag before I would choose this model. but that's me. I would go with the MTGHS EFI over the super b.

    The gravely pro stance is an awesome machine if the stand on is the way you want to go.

    The walker EFI would make sense if you do alot of bagging, leaf clean up , and have alot of really nice lawns where people are real picky.

    I don't think you go wrong with any of them.
