    A friend is getting ready to buy a riding mower for a large estate and wondered what would be his best choice. We suggested a scag.

    My all time favorite is a Craftsman 52" with the Flames on the hood... I have come to find that The Exmark Lazers are good second option.... :)

    I have (gulp!) A few… for the home owner: :blob3:

    I like Hustler, (this is what I use) and the eXmark, both these machine will quickly give a good quality of cut and come in different deck sizes, and are also very well built.
    Moreover, I also like the Walker for it’s superb cut quality and it’s vacuum cleaner like ability to keep yards clean. Also the upfront flip up deck design for saving time on trimming, easy deck cleaning and blade maintenance.

    For professional use: payup

    I like the Dixie Chopper for it’s speed, cut, and M1 tank build that allows it to survive in enemy hands LOL! :gunsfirin

    Also in the same category, I like the Scag for the many factory accessories and variety of quality mowing equipment to suit your needs.

    Just MHO! :angel:

    Hope that helps! :drinkup:

    It’s all good! Enjoy! Peace! :angel:
