    You forgot Lesco 54" Hydro walk with Z control, with its pricing, Lesco kicks eXmark butt anyday. BTW, I run 52" TTHP for almost 2 seasons now, great walk and everything but my next buy will be in Lesco camp.

    Thanks for the polls. Any pro;s to each. I wonder if a viking would be fine for me as we dont change the deck height very often, anyone own viking hydro's???

    Who else also keeps mowers simple and the same for less things to break, Ie 2 2 52's and 36" ( same blades) I do like the exmark with no battery and no pto. any thoughts

    go with the exmark! Forget the tthp and get a TT. I have a 52" TT with 1400 hrs on it now and it runs like a champ. The floating deck is an absolute must, if you think you don't need it your wrong, give it time and you will wish you got it. I highly recommend the TT. Also, I run this one mower and get everything I need on a 6 x 12 trailer.
