    Help me decide witch mower would be best. Witch one will hold up better and be more trouble free. Witch one will have the best cut quality, and cuts the fastest in tall grass? If you have any other mower suggestions feel free. Thank's for the help Andy.:)

    Not sure what your cutting condition are, hills with thick tall grass. You want to take all that into consideration, cause that will tell you what need to get. I think a 52" deck with a 19 hp is under powered, but thats just for my needs.
    19 hp. more suited for 48'" deck. Shop around and check them all out, good service close to home is something to consider too.

    depending on your lawns and such, if you are going with wright, get the RH model, if you are going with eXmark, get the most HP for the deck size you can get.

    Try the stander with a 23hp Kawi. They work very well for us.

    My dealer is within 5 miles. My dealer doesn't have a 23 hp model in stock. what do the 23hp models go for?

    If it were me i would get a 48" exmark, it may be able to get into some tight places and also it is cheaper.... and sometimes 4 inches doesn't matter( do not quote me on that)
