Ok, sorry to beat a dead horse, but I'm 21 and making a purchase on a very expensive mower and just want to be sure i get what i want and am paying for. I have narrowed it down to these two tractors. I will be getting 60" deck. I have narrowed to these two cause these seem to be what i hear the most about. I love them both and it ws very hard for me to pick one. I know you guys have years and years with them so i leave it in the hands of the pros. It seems that the DC is HUGE compared to the Exmark is this just the way the pictures look or what? MONSTER sheesh hehe. Beautiful machine though. What are the price are of these guys new roughly about 10k-12k? I want a piece of realiable good cutting speed demon (dont we all). Well thanks for the info. Please dont flame =) i'm a rookie. Thanks for all your help.
