    It seems like everyone has Exmarks, but all I see around here(my town) are Grasshoppers. However, I never see a Grasshopper listed on here. What are you guys using? Also, who wins out of Grasshopper vs. Walker vs. Exmark?

    There has been some talk about Grasshopper on here, do a search... I demoed a unit, midmount, and gave my report of what I thought on here. The post was labled "grasshopper review" or something like that. Good solid machines, but definately are an acquired taste.

    I'm not in your area, but we use Ferris. Once you use a fully independant suspension mower, you will not want to use anything else.

    Toro Z588E down here! 28hp efi, 60'' turbo force deck.

    soon will be demoing a 997 JD with rear discharge deck, Hustler with rear discharge deck, and Iseki ztr with rear discharge deck, the Iseki is so new it isn't even on their web site yet, but specs and pics in the brochure shows it is hot! I'm hoping it outperforms the others, 200kgs lighter!

    The JD will be interesting, heard great things about this new model, interesting to see how the J.D r.d deck goes! Anyone seen one working, the current rear distcharge deck has been around foe awhile apparently, so maybe you guys have seen work done by one?

    these are diesels btw.

    Comparing Exmark and Grasshopper to Walker, is like comparing apples to oranges IMO.Since We have never owed a Walker or Grasshopper, I can’t compare them to our Exmarks .
    We use Exmark Lazer Z and Lazer Z hp Z-turns. Three are getting into the ready to replace phase.

    Lazer Z 60 inch Kohler engines
    Lazer Z 48 hp Kawasaki Engine
    Lazer Z 52 Hp Kawasaki Engines.
