I am going to purchase my first zero turn mower and would like to know what you guys thought about these 2. Both are from local dealers and are within $300 of each other. I kind of like the rounded corners of the JD's stamped deck, but have never been real impressed with the JD riding mowers. Might consider an Exmark also. It's alot of money for me to spend but you also get what you pay for. So I am real interested to see what the guys that have experience with these mowers have to say, Thanks.
