Hate to beat a old question right into the ground. I know it's been discussed at length previously. And I know it comes down to personal preferences. Also the obvious answer lies in demo'ing the machines. But here is my question. Which mower to buy?<br> Assuming all three machines(exmark, walker, gravely) are equipped with same width deck (52", roughly same horsepower(20-22), mulching decks, no bagging decks. What would you the lawncare professional with experience recommend? Price will not be an issue. I'm getting into this for the long haul and want the best. <br> The three manufacturers I listed above are all carried by dealers locally. And I feel that it is important to have a good dealer nearby. That leaves out Great Dane's and Dixie Choppers which I would be interested in also.<br> The market I'm trying to break into is higher end residential with lawn's up to 4 acres. I'll leave my other questions for another discussion(could probably fill three more pages with my ignorant questions, and hehe I probably will).<br> From what I've read here the Exmark and the Walker both are highly regarded. The Gravely I haven't heard much about, although the local dealer is pushing them fairly hard. My purchase will be in the next couple of months, so I will not have time to demo. Kind of hate to buy something without trying it out. But I plan to be ready for full operation as soon as grass is ready. One other machine to thow in the mix. The Exmark dealer has a Toro Zmaster 52" demo he's pushing.<br> Sorry for the rambling but if anybody has any suggestions I'd love to hear them. Thank you.
