    I currently have a toro 253 teamster with a 62" deck and 23 hp Kohler. It has been giving me some problems and I am thinking about trading it. I would like to get a 52" cut with at least 23 hp. I have thought about getting a top of the line hydro floating deck exmark or scag. Will the walk behind be as beneficial as a rider with the same deck size? I'm also trying to get rid of some debt as well.

    As far as speed they will wear you out faster standing taking all the bumps on your legs and knees. Velkes are nice but i like the proslide by novae. no ruts and helps with stripes.

    Ck out the Hustler Z, we run 23/52 riders and they are really great mowers. Demo serveral brands and you'll agree.
