    The Exmark or the Bad Boy. Not a fan of CC or the Titan series.

    I've been looking at the Titan Z also and would be curious what I should be aware of?

    How about the new Hustler Super Duty FastTrack. I just bought one.

    what about the Scag Freedom? 19 kawi/48" sells for $5200. That or the Bad Boy ZT are great choices.

    btw, you can get the Bad Boy ZT with the 23hp Vanguard on any cutting width for like $400 more than the ELS.

    How about a Deere Z445 or Z465... 25hp Kawasaki, 48, 54, or 62" decks.

    I believe there is better than the Toro Titan Z. Here's my rant on a different thread. If your going to spend about $5K on a mower, get a good brand built like a commercial (welded deck, easy access to belts and filters, pro-quality spindles).


    The spindles on the Toro Titan Z are 'grease-less'. This is always a kiss of death for me, but then again, I expect a lot from my equipment.

    Don't be fooled by the great engine and hydro system. The deck is stamped aluminum foil. :hammerhead:

    HEY! That's MY line! :laugh:

    I just went through the same process about choosing a mower. I went with the ZT Bad Boy. Most features for the money.
