    I have two old Scag STHM Kohler 20HP 61" front deck tripod mowers, real old, like 'em a lot though. Business is good and I got a new office park customer, and I am thinking about getting a couple of ZTRs. Kinda lookin' over the new Hustlers or else a Scag Turf Tiger. Somebody want to open a can of worms for me and make a recommendation? I've seen some inexpensive models out there, need reliable but not necessarily high dollar. Just 'coz its expensive don't make it better.

    Go with Toro they give a great cut and the price is cheaper than exmark and they are just as good (toro makes exmark). I would say TORO WITH OUT A DOUBT i run toros and i love them. Wouldnt run anything else.

    personally i think the hustlers are better i demoed ex mark and the hustler i also have the three wheel scag right now. ex mark had the cleaner cut but by the time u double cut with a hustler it looks ten times better the the exmark. but the best thing to do is go demo both of them

    I just bought a new Hustler, awesome!!! The only piece of advice I can really give you is find a good, close dealer that will give you good support. Whether they have Exmark, Toro, or Hustler, you really can't go wrong. Do a couple searches around the board here and see what else you come up with. I chose the Hustler because of input from this site and how well the dealer treats me. Good dealer support is worth its weight in gold.
