    Definately go with the exmark, they have a really good cut and are reliable!!! And yes, X marks the spot on everywhere you mow!

    Look into Scag

    they will be comparable in price

    Bullet proof units

    thats all I run

    Have a 48 belt

    61 zero

    52 hydro walk behind

    Its all ford or chevy to an extent.

    If you have a dealer near, please look at one, you will see the difference Scag is definitly better built

    I would check and see which dealer has the best support. I cant really say that the Husky isnt a good mower but that close in price I think I would go with the Exmark.

    Take the 2700 and use it as a down payment on a Hydro unit. If you cut grass to make money than go Hydro. It will cost much less to own as it will produce more.
    If this is a hobby or you want exercize the belt will do fine:p
