    For the price the Samaria is a awsome piece of machinary. Better Outdoor Products is having a sell right now. Today I did all my yard with the Samurai, I usually use my Walker mower, but today I thought I would use the Samurai all day. I was little tired from walking to use to sitting on my butt and mowing. The machine has a great cut and is very easy to use, even for someboby as lazy as me.

    I have not heard much good about husq, have heard a lot of good on Better Outdoor Products and of course the exmark is a fine mower. I have not used any of the above but from what I've read I would choose the samurai.

    Quick 36 can't beat the price and haven't heard anything negative about the Better products. You don't need a dealer close to you they come straight from the factory.

    I bought a Quick 36 Samurai last month...Great machine! I had 2 small issues with it. (I busted the brake handle and the gas cap was leaking) I called them today and they are shipping me new parts next day!!! Awesome Service!

    Exmark is the way to go. Very reliable machine.

    That's a good point. I like the Samurai's and Better Outdoor is less than two hours away; but since you purchase factory direct, who does the warranty work?:confused:

    what does a 36 inch belt drive exmark go for? ultimatly i would love an exmark hydro 36, but cant afford it. im getting to the point where i need a bigger mower than the 21 incher. i dont mow any hilly areas. would the exmark belt do good even in damp conditions, i live in the pacific northwest, in oregon, so the grass is wet at times. i really want to make the right decision. living in a small town we dont have the option to demo machines, so im stuck doing tons of research and asking for lots of opinions. thanks for your time.
