In the many, many posts (including some of my own) that ask which brand to buy, one common answer is that a main point is to go with a reputable dealer that will provide good service and also be in reasonable proiximity. I have been looking mostly at eXmarks and Hustlers and like what I see and, within a 20-mile radius, I have access to most brands. But very close by is a Grasshopper dealer and I think I can get a good deal because I bought a tractor from them. They're good folks and provide good service, etc. The question is, do I want a Grasshopper? The application is a mixture of lawn and field mowing. The latter consists of all kinds of weeds and grasses but none of it should be a real challenge to any decent mower. The field areas are a bit of a rough ride at times, however, even in a pick-up truck. I am not a commercial operator, where I might be replacing this mower in a few years anyway. This might be my only mower forever. Should I consider the GH?
