    Are these brand new '06 mowers? Because I don't see a 27 HP L/C mower for Exmark...

    I recently purchased an Exmark Rider,it was a leftover 2005 model.We also have a Scag w/b and love it,one of the best cutting machine's we use.Their riders are fantastic as well.While I have never used a Lesco Rider before I do know people in the business that own them and like them.For the money I don't think you can go wrong with a Lesco Rider.They are cheaper price wise then the other two mowers listed by far,so if it come down to price for you stick with the Lesco.

    Ferris or Hustler would be my choice but I voted for the Lesco because they are the lowest priced machine and just as good if not better than the Scag and Exmark. The only thing about the Lesco is your getting a lesser engine by it being air cooled and a little less hp.

    My first z was a 60" 23 hp lc lazer. Still going strong after 1500 hrs. But my last 2 have been Scags(52" and 72"). If the exmark starts giving me trouble it will be replaced with a 61" tiger or wildcat.
