    Hello All, I use Exmark lazers for cutting but I want to buy a hydro walk behind this year for some smaller accounts. What do guys like out there for 48" walk behinds?

    Well if you use all Exmark then I would say buy one of them. Good cut, okay price and will match all your other equipment. I had an exmark 48 hydro and liked it very much. How ever I no longer use exmark so my 48 WB is alittle prettier now. lol :D

    You might want to check out the Scag Walkbehinds also, Ive ran both and the Scag JIMO has a better cut, but there riders cut don't come close to the exmark Zs....Marks Mowing Service Ps in the late 90s the scags didn't outcut the exmark walks but since then there cut is awesome,

    I have an Exmark TTHP 36" that is great for me. Why not stay with Exmark?

    I have a Scagg 36" W/B and it's a good unit for me. It's best to check'em all out and decide. I would consider keeping the same Brand.. Good Luck.....

    i run a scag, a lesco, and a ferris. I am trading the ferris and the scag for a exmark 48" tthp tm. The scag gives a good cut, the lesco gives and excellent cut but tyhe controls are a b*tch. the ferris has good controls but has a major blowout problem with no solution. Everyone in my area i sslowly but surely swicting to exmark.

    I'd stay with eXmark, the metro I got to demo was a great machine.
