    There is no very best mower. And you can get spindle driven bagging units for almost every mower out there now. I recommend that you see what is available in your area, go look at them, ask questions and see if they'll let you take them for a test drive. Take a look at the dealers shop area. Do they have a lot of newer mowers in the shop waiting to be repaired? That is never a good sign. Is there a lot of homeowner equipment waiting to be repaired and if there is ask them what their policy is regarding fixing your equipment and how long you will have to wait should the need arise. Is the shop clean and neat or dirty and messy. Remember, a little mess or clutter means that they're just busy, not disorganized.

    Dixie Chopper end of story. They put the rest of the zero turns to shame, unless you like paying more money and sitting on the machine for a longer period of time

    Everyone will say that their machine is the best. As long as you mow the grass when needed, and try to avoid the rain any 72in in my opion will do. In your area who has the best dealer support? I run Bobcat and cant say they do a bad job, i have also demoed the scag, toro, gravely, and ferris and they all seem to do the same job.
