    I like the Kubota's I have in the zg227 and 327. I haven't really ran with anything else except snapper years ago. I am quite interested in a Wright stander down the road, as I have heard many good things about them. The Kubota is easy to maintain, gives a quality cut, and IMO one of the more quiet mowers. I think all the brands have there pluses, and can be worth the investment if cared for properly.

    I like kubota because of the ruggedness and long life of the diesel. My ZD326 leaves a great cut and powers through anything and once you get used to the heavy weight it doesn't leave marks on turf like many say. I had a wright before but the cut was terrible and this mower is built WAY heavier all around. With proper maintenance there is no reason it shouldn't last 3-4000 hours or more.

    My liquid cooled Scag with almost 1200 hours is doing well. Had to reweld the radiator brackets and rebuild the front wheel bearings. Has 35hp Briggs.

    Currently 2011 John Deere Z925A

    Pro's The 7 Iron pro can not be beat in my northern grasses, second best cut up here would have to be scag with the velocity deck
    Some more pros, plenty of power, deck stays super clean, super easy maintenance warranty is next to none and dealer support is unreal.
    Cons: not one complaint, I absolutely love it
    Sorry Walker fans, in the 50 mile travel radius I cover there's only 2 guys that I have ever seen with them, love to give one a try but no dealer that I know of

    Walker!! We have a lot of guys that run exmark and grasshopper in our area. But for me Walker, just cause everybody else runs a certain brand don't mean I' m gonna. To me you have two sides, walker's extreme maintainance and the mow blow and go guys with grasshoppers

    Ferris IS3000 is my favorite and the new IS3100 is pretty decent. The IS2000 is slacking on traction.
