    IF you want to mulch, exmark kawi

    If you want to side dischage and move like the wind? Hustler

    Exmark= cleanercut when mulching

    Hustler will run circles around anything but a dixie chopper

    everyone around here uses exmark and loves them. make sure there is a dealer nearby for whatever one you buy

    If you go with Hustler make sure the dealer is a good one because it will be in the shop more than an Exmark. Plus Exmark U/C deck will outcut the XR7 deck if a clean cut means anything. I have both and mulch with both. Check out the Exmark Lazer Z AS with a suspension seat and U/C deck. Demo if you can , but beings your in Arkansas you might want to compare a Bad Boy mower, their made in Batesville.

    eXmark. it dosen't go 15 mph, but better cut quality, reliability, and dealer support.

    That's quite a hearty endorsement, for a man who, from what I can tell, has never owned nor operated either mower in question (unless there's a Lazer hiding behind your '06 Toro Recycler 21").

    I bought a Exmark 60" AS with the Ultra cut deck it had the 25 kohler. Lets just say the exmark had 10 hours on it when i traded it in for my 66" super Z with the 30 kohler. Ive had a 60" Super Z for quite a while now, and after mowing with the super Z and going to a exmark the ride is so crappy on the exmark. Yah you can buy a suspension seat for the exmark, but you get many more features with the super Z. I think the super Z cuts just as well as the Exmark AS. There is a acreage that i mowed with both machines, the only difference is i was done way quicker with the Super Z and the cut was still VERY good at full speed.
