    if you're looking @ hydro units, do yourself a favor and at least check out the Excel Hustler unit. very nice controls and very well built. check out their website to find closest dealer @ www.excelhustler.com

    Without a good product, dealer support ain't enough. You can't polish a turd.

    Sorry, couldn't resist. (grin)

    Never fall in love with something that can't love you back.

    If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't return, hunt it down and destroy it.

    Well, Jeff. Its like a Ford vs. Chevy battle when it comes to brand names. Everybody will say their brand is better thant he other. You just have to try them out and see what YOU like. We can only offer suggestions based on our personal experiences. With me, I've had Great Dane, Skag, Lesco,and Exmark. Although all these are excellent mowers, I have to lean toward the Exmark badges. I also love my Lesco 52' w/b hydro. I had the Email me, and I'll let you know what my experiences have been with all these machines. Good luck with you decision.

    Excellent qoute, but make sure you give it enough time to come back before the hunt & destroy thing.
    From what I've read here you can't go wrong with any of the top brands. One advantage for Exmark, their after purchase service is incredible. I can e-mail them with any question & get a response the next day (thanks Lenny). Sent an e-mail to Toro on a new purchase about 2 months ago, still waiting for a reply.
