Hello all. I'm getting back into the Lawn and Landscape business after 10 yrs out of it. Need some advice. I am going to buy my mower new. Just can't decide on which flavor. I used to own a Grasshopper front mount and had alot of success and made loads of money with it. That was before eXmark was around. Cant decide between the two and mid mount or front mount. I know I could save money buying used, BUT, it will pay for itself and if it's ever down my dealer has loaners - an upside to buying new! Really could use some advice on these mowers, or any others for that matter. Thanx.

so are you a ford or chevy guy? this is really what this question comes down to. most commercial mowers are built to the same standard with many of the same parts. like the chevy/ford question, they're really about the same, they both have the same main features, with different bells and whistles. i personally run toro/exmark with great success, but jd, dc, snapper, and scag have performed great for me. i also noticed some pros in a grasshopper mower i saw from the road the other day (it was being operated). everyone is going to have an opinion, just like i call myself a chevy truck guy, i honestly wouldnt have an issue driving a dodge or ford. jmo...

I've got to start workin' on all my marketing and have accounts signed and ready for spring. But not gonna start to early on it. People tend to lose info if they have it in their hands to long before they need it
