    Looking to replace my 5 year old tthp 48". Going to go 52" in either the turf tracer or the turf tracer hp. Is there any difference between the two except horse power and tire size? I was thinking the extra horses would be good because I use the sulky often and I also do some light field mowing. Is the bigger machine as maneuverable and does it hold to side hills as good as the tthp? How much more should the turf tracer cost, and is it worth the extra? Thanks, Reg.

    My understanding is that the Turf Tracer has a Heavier duty clutch and also the Turf Tracer has Ultra Cut deck which is deeper than the Trivantage Deck by I believe .75 " or maybe a little more! I would post the question on the Exmark Forum. Terry or one of the other guys on there can give you more details !

    I just got a 52" turf tracer with the 23hp Kawasaki and it sticks to hills like glue. I'm real happy with it . I was using a 1998 60" gravely hydro pro and this new Exmark cuts circles around that old gravely. plus I love the wider stance and wider tires. I would go with the tracer with the big motor you wont be sorry

    The HP's are more compact & better suited to smaller areas..

    I prefer the HP's, simply because we do alot of smaller props..
