    Currently have an Exmark and a Gravely but my next mower could very well be a Spartan. I used to run Dixie Chopper.

    I still need to get my hands on one and test drive it and look at it in person but it checks all the boxes I have for what I want in my next mower with the exception of the small gas tank. I've gotten used to the 12 gallon tank on my Exmark and the Spartan only comes with a 9 gallon tank which means I'm going to be stopping at the gas station nearly every day instead of every two days or so.

    Currently running 52 and 36 inch Snapper Pro ZTRs. Best bang for buck for me at the stage my business is in.

    Few years from now will probably go Scag or Deere.

    Ok so what is making you change from snapper to scag or deere? do you dislike the snapper? what makes you want a scag or a deere?

    Im more after the reason you own what you own/reason you want x brand mower

    I really like the Snappers, but I cut a lot of St. Augustine, and many times it's wet from rain or irrigation systems. From my research and from what guys here have also said, the Scag and Deere decks are better suited for my conditions than the Snapper ICD deck.
