    52" Wright Stander. Get at least the 23 hp Kawasaki.

    52" Scag wildcat with the liquid cooled Kawasaki. Truly an awesome midsized mower.

    Well if you like your Snapper the 48" Walkbehinds are good. Or also check out the Snapper 52" ZTRs. But go with whatever dealer treats you and supports you the best.

    Hustler Super Walkbehind 48" or 54" with the right sulky will do anything any similar sized mower will do and more.

    Guys he said the best. Sorry, but snapper and hustler are no where near the best, or even midpack. Not saying that scag is the best of the best either. If you are looking for a quality TOP of the line machine check out exmark, scag, dixie, gravely, etc....

    Thats just your opinion. Me and many other members here know that isn't true. Hustlers are among some of the best mowers on the market but it comes down to the machine that fits you conditions the best and the one that has the best dealer. Nowdays there really isn't a commercial ztr on the market that isn't a good high quality machine.

    If your looking for a good 48" or 52" mower check out Hustler, Ferris, Cub cadet commercial or Lesco and the new Encore X-treme's look really nice too so if you have an Encore dealer in your area you may want to check them out as well. Also check out the brands listed in the above post as they are good as well.

    Amen! I have a snapper dealer who sells shindaiwa. They go together nicely. Red on Red
