    I have been looking at several brands of commerical ZTR mowers---Scag, Gravely, XMark, Dixie Chopper, and Kubuta.
    This is for home use and maybe a few lawns to help pay the notes, I am looking at either a 36 inch or 48 inch cut.
    Can anyone give me a little advice on which brand should I buy.

    Home use - best bang for your buck - get a Dixon. Any commercial use - go with toro, exmark, scag - more money and a whole lot more mower!

    Of your choices I would go with the gravely. Decent machine for what you need. You dont need to spend top dollar on Dixie or Exmark. Your not going to be running it for 8 hours a day like we do. Check out gravely. I looked at them while my dealer was mounting my plow and thought they looked good for a starter company or even great for a homeowner. Dixion might be a second choice for you. Some in here like them alot. Good luck.

    I love my scag tt, I loved my dixie 42in , I also loved my sentar 52, with that being said you couldn't go wrong with either. Im looking to demo a JD quiktrac 657Maybe adding a JD657 with 36 Sentar. Im looking for more speed.

    I think the Z's at home depot are all residential mowers and not commercial
