    Ok. I visted all the dealers today, demoed all the mowers, and am down to 3 different mowers. The first is the Dixie Chopper Coatsville Classic with the 60" and 25HP Kohler. The next contender is the Ferris 1000Z 60" with 25HP Kohler. The last contender is the Cub Tank M60 60" with 25HP Kawasaki or Kohler. They are all the same price. The Dixie is actually a few bucks more, but not much. I wanted to get everyones input on these mowers. :help:

    I didn't include exmark because I really didn't like their design, price, or service. They wanted more than $1500 more than everyone else and didn't have a long warranty. I also hate the local exmark dealer. They screwed me over a bunch of times now. :angry:

    i have a cub tank m54 24hp honda one of the best mowers i have used going on my 3rd season with not one single problem yet.
    i have compared my cub with a exmark one of us cut the back and the other cut the front the cub to me is a way better mower does not clump as much stripes way better and is more comfortable i would recommend the tank anyday over a exmark. (both mowers were 100% stock), out of the 3 you listed i would say go with which one has the best dealer support.my cub dealer here is awesome great bunch of guys. my pick would be the cub.
    I do like the exmark walk behinds cuts nice and with a proslide stripes very well.

    just curious have you compared the exmark and cub side by side?
