    Our Exmark 48" hydro is our best cutting most reliable machine. And it is pretty quick when you put the sulky on and push it to 6.

    O and it broke one belt early in the season because the tensioner was not adjusted properly.

    Exmark and Lesco. I know it's not on your list but Lesco has unbeatable value. Exmark I have found around here is easier to get parts for but neither break down frequently. I think the next one I buy will be a Lesco 54" floating deck, hydro. I have a 36" fixed deck lesco hydro that cuts and stripes just as good as my 52" TTHP. It's too bad Lesco won't do demos.
