    Hey guys,
    I searched different terms but still couldn't find the results I am after.
    I am just wondering what you all use as your main machine?

    I have some some 1/10- 1 acre accounts and im expanding and researching which mowers are best. Could be WB or ZTR.

    I see a lot of guys around here running exmark ztrs.

    thanks a lot!

    52" scag wildcat then a 36" scag v ride. I would go look at a scag the turf tiger is the best big ztr in my opinion. I will be replacing my wildcat with a turf tiger in the near future. All scag's are great just don't get a freedom z that's the homeowner line. The v ride would be great for small to medium sized yards.

    Wright 36"RH standers. DC and Scag for large areas.LB 22s. Hoping to replace everything with Ferris Evos next season. Yards are just too small around here to carry a big mower for two passes on the front yard then unload a smaller one to fit through the gate to do two more passes there. We waste a lot time in loading and unloading.

    52 inch wright stander. It's like a billy goat. I can hang the craziest hills no problem. It will out preform any z rider on hills which makes it the most versatile

    Almost every person on here will tell you that the brand they are using is suitable. There is no one correct answer. I will say this if I had no hills and no huge lots I'd probably go with a 48inch or a 52inch zero turn. Now a Scag Turf Tiger is the cream of the crop or maybe a Kubota ZD. I had the money this year and could have bought any one I wanted. I bought a Bad Boy Outlaw XP and a Bad Boy Stander for less than the price of either of the two mowers I mentioned. I basically bought two commercial mowers for the price of one Turf Tiger. I don't have to worry about durability. When the warranty is up I will be trading them in for new. The single most important thing I would look at is the quality of service you are going to get from your local dealer.
