Hello I am new to the site, and have been searching for some advice on weather I should pack my buisness up, and do something else or go big. I have been doing residential mowing for three yrs now. My delema is I am loosing $$$. I bought a Dixon Kodiak 50" mower 2yrs ago, and it has turned into a major headache. If I am to keep my buisness I need a new mower. In my area I am torn between the Grasshopper, and the exmark mower. I don't want to start a debate about which mower is better, but would like to hear of peoples personal exsperiance w/ these mowers. I don't know if I will be purchasing new or used so any info on know problems, and what to look for would be very helpfull. I also want to know which mower is the most adaptable. Can it be easily changed over from bagger, mulching, side discharge. I have a good reputation in my area, but from the all the down time I am having w/ my Dixon I am starting to loose customers. I am terrified of taking on another mower payement, and getting stuck w/ another lemon of a mower. In advance I would like to thank everyone for advice.
