    how big do you want?
    how much are you willing to spend?
    What brands are available in your area?

    I love my exmark. Not only the product but the customer service that was given before, durring, and after the sale! Good luck!

    I would buy a mower with the best dealer support.

    I would NOT buy an exmark. overated in my opinion. a solid machine durability wise, but not very good for maintenance, and the cut is not what I would expect from it.

    If I had to do it over again, I would buy A scag or grasshopper Z. diesel or EFI only.

    15 years old and full of experience????

    Exmarks are quite good in ALL departments.
    Once you have a little experience then maybe you can tell us about trashing one of the top manufacturers of commercial mowing equipment.

    Were I am located I would buy from one dealer only because of his service and loaner policy. Of the diffrent brands he carries I would probably go with Encore. Quality of cut is as good as anyone ride on the prowler is as good as anyone and the machine is built stout! But your biggest problem is finding a good service dealer!
