    My local dealer said he's not ordering anymore until exmark fixes the flaws. don't remember what they were, but he likes to keep his customers satisfied

    I use one on 2 lawns a week. It's ok...its a little heavy to turn, I dont think it bags very well, but it does mow fairly quickly and its easy to adjust mowing height. If you can get one for a good price, would be a good mower to have.

    Wrong, people want it to look good, they don't care how you get there! A Exmark 26 is not the way.

    Boat anchor. Problem is I purchased 3 of those Exmarks and only have one boat. Loose as a goose in a month. Handles broke after a month. They were welded, strapped, bungeed and put away to rust. The Toro Proline or Honda Comm. 21 only way to go.

    I have three of them, but we only use them a few times per week. Have not any troubles with them, but please note they are seldom used. I don't have any issues with cut quality, just better eat a Powerbar before mowing. Good workout when in a tight yard if you are turning alot.

    You might want to take a look at the new YBravo 25" if you have a dealer close by. My dealer is supposed to have these in soon to demo. 117lbs vs. 150lbs on the Exmark 26.
