I know it has been debated before but I am in need of a 36" w/b and I can no longer search the equipment forum or craigslist waiting for a deal. With that being said I have only used a Toro Proline belt driven with Tbar controls several years ago that I no longer own. Dealer support not an issue as most are fairly close by. I haven't demoed any brand but from reading, reading, and more reading I think I have narrowed it down to either exmark or scag. Will pay cash and if money is not an issue what would you buy? I have postage stamp yards and future accounts will be the same. My wants out of this mower as I will use it until it falls apart 1. easy to use 2. great cut with grass catcher 3. durability 4. nice stripes 5. easy height deck changing if that's an option. And yes I bag grass, my customers want me to and I charge accordingly and I get paid to fertilize (yes I am licensed- business & pesticide & insured) Thank you in advance for your responses !
