    well, ive been looking at exmark, gravely and just today hustler. before it has seems exmark stripes best out of all of em. but i really like how hustler machines are easy to operate. so out of those 3 which stripe best for a 48" hydro WB?

    Out of those 3 the exmark will cut the best with the best stripes. We have founf and I am sure many will agree that bob cat mowers produce really nice stripes and a superb cut and are built really well. So go look into a bob cat also.
  3. Scag floating deck hydro's stripe and cut excellent.built like tanks to.

    Actually, in the spring is normally when a dealer will hold an open house and you can get a better deal then. Also, the Bob-Cat is the most awesome stripes out of the crate that I have seen.

    that lesco is also the same as a cub commercial. I never even seen a bob cat stripe. Is it really that good?

    I know somebody will yell at me for this. But don't forget to look at a Wright Stander. They stripe real well. The Wright velke mowers also strip very well.
