I have a dealer that has a 60" Hustler Super Z 25 hp Kawi for $5899. I am seriously considering it after I do a demo. I would like opinions on that verus more money for a smaller eXmark? Are these durable machines? The warranty seems great lifetime on the frame and leading edge of the deck and all the metal on the deck (excluding bearings, pulleys..etc). I mow in East Texas with alot of Bahaia grass. Non commercial, I will be mowing about 5 acres of my own.

If you were cutting commercial I would say you need a bigger engine, but since you are not this should be a great mower for you. Put on some flex forks and your beer will not even foam up.:drinkup: But remember not to many!

I am not cutting commercially but it will be my pasture - that has ususally been mowed with a tractor. I am thinking once I get it down and keep it down it should not be a problem.

Had a hard time getting hooked up with this dealer. Everytime I wanted to get it for a demo he was gone or other wise.... So I decided to go with my local (8 miles away) eXmark dealer for a 52" with a 27 HP Kohler command for $7400. Thanks for your thoughts.

Just cut it with the tractor first, wait a couple of weeks for the windrows to dry out then the SZ should be good to go!
That said, I dont know how long the grass is in your paddocks. Maybe able to just mow it but slowly!
