    I've owned and used about every brand out there and I'm pondering wich ZTR has given me the least headaches. Not the best cut or fastest groundspeed; but the one that my guys don't have to call me to come pickup,repair, push on the Trailer etc.

    ExMark. That's why I have 3. Very few headaches and they ride like a top, day in and day out.

    After 5 years of scags, 6 of them, 13 years of Dixie's, over 20 of them,
    I have switched to Exmark. That is for my 60" mowers. As far as the Walkers
    we will see if the navigator stands up to the challenge. My guys loved the Exmark. I was impressed with the dealer and the Company rep. I would have liked to see Hustler just don't have a dealer close enough.
    What part of Nj are you?

    Although My dixie has not been my favorite ZTR I have owed I do think it has been the most dependable because of its simplicity. Love the toro z's and exmark lazers I have had because of their cut quality, stability on hill and ride quality. The DC hasnt always had the best quality of cut, its horrible on hills but after racking up over 1200 hours on my 60" DC it has never needed one repair yet exept for basic wear items. Great mower for wide open flat properties. For my smaller residential properties I prefer my toro's.

    For me its Scag all the way. Used Deere,Exmark, and were good mowers but Scag is where its at.
