Looking for a new ZTR mower and have it narrowed down to either the eXmark Quest or JD Z425, with a 48 inch deck. I'd appreciate any recommendation you all may have on one over the other as well as your thoughts on how each performs with a mulching kit. The Lawn is @ 1.25 acres and I am replaceing a eXmark 32 inch Metro that I have had for 10 years. The eXmark is @ $500 more than the John Deere and both are sold by the same dealer. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
