I think I have narrowed down my choices between the Scag, Exmark, and the Hustler. All in the 25-27 hp range, 60-61 cut. The local dealer here sells all 3 brands under one roof. The salesman at the dealer says he likes the Hustler because of what he says Hustlers require less pressure on the controls. I like the the looks of the Scag as far as ruggedness. The Exmark is good looking too, bay a little more pricier than the Hustler. I know the general opinions on this website puts the Exmark and the Scag at the top, but does the Hustler rank up there too. I have never used a ZTR before, so I am not really sure what I am looking for in a ZTR.
