After hours of debating and checking out the different brands we finally bought a Exmark Lazer HP, we pick it up next Friday. The dealer ordered it a few months ago but I wasnt sure if I would take it or not after looking at Gravely, Snapper and Wright Stander's but in the end we decided on the Exmark. I got a great deal on the Trac Vac for it. Hopefully this will speed things along!lol. We got the HP w/50" and a 27hp Kholer so bogging down shouldn't be an issue. We paid a little more than the ones mentioned above, but in the long run I think its worth it.
