Curently im running a dc. Looks like i will be switching to another brand in the spring, so i went out testing the waters this week. Love the cut of the scag wildcat, but good lord the steering bars are harder than rowing a boat, out of the question(and i was sure i was going to go with a scag). Ferris cut good, but i just was not comfortable on it, just not for me.. Gravely felt awesome, really awesome. Smooth steering, very comfortable ride, but the cut seemed to be off somewhat. Several uncut blades of grass after each pass.. Im still thinking really hard about the gravely. Next was the exmark hp. very comfortable, easy steering, felt just right. Smooth ride, was a pleasure to operate, but unfortunatly i wasnt able to cut with it yet, but will soon enough, and i just kknow it is going to cut sweet. I am really leaning toward the exmark. Plus the dealer has great service.. And i now saw on that other thread the new models for 06 and the changes to the hp make it almost a hands down decision.
