    The best is what you like to ride, and is most comfortable for you.

    Most people have Exmark's.

    I love my Textron/Bob-Cat, and now a lot of LCO's that are getting rid of their entire fleets of lazers for them.

    Just find what works best for you, your budget, and your area.

    Scags are great machines, but demo and find good dealer.

    That's the problem the way I see it. Most people buy what they see, which usually in turn means that they are buying what's popular.

    Don't be a victim of that mentality. Demo every dang thing they will let you take out!!! To find out what is best, there is no substitute for several demos.

    I shopped, demoed, shopped, demoed until I was sick of it. But in return I found a mower that works really well for my application. However, what brand, style or size mower I have don't really me jack to you or any of the other forum members...unless your accounts are very very similar to mine.

    Some guys can't get through the day without there big, fast 72" DC, whereas I can't get through the day without my tiny little 48" mower.
