I'm not trying to start a Ford vs Chevy thing but I need a z turn mower for a specific purpose. I have spent all week talking to dealers and they all say there mower is best suited for my needs. (go figure). Anyway I am cutting around some lakes once a month. The grass is just tough field grass. It will always be tall and some times it will likely be wet. I'm not cutting pretty yards with stripes just tough grass . So as you can see I need a tough mower to deal with this. There is also a couple of hills that i will have to deal with. The dealers that I have talked to are Exmark, Bob Cat, Scagg, Gravely. Thanks for any help .
