    I'll have to suggest Exmark (same manf. as Toro). I borrow a buddies of mine and he is hands down the worst on equipment of anyone I've seen. That Exmark has almost 1,000 hours on it with him mowing stuff all over his ranch. They just bought a Scag which I like and he says it mows faster and likes it so far (only had it a week so far). Scag has zero down and free financing right now I think which is why he jumped on it.

    I bought one this year and love it. I had a regular JD riding mower until then. I mow about 3 acres and went from 3 1/2 hours on the mower to 1 1/2 hours on the zero turn.
    And like Marc said but from a dealer not a chain store ,there is a big difference in quality. Also the high capacity deck is a nice feature in heavy grass.

    I had a fairly large Simplicity - until mice built a nest in the cooling vent and I burned up the engine. I replaced it with this:

    It's built like a tank. It's a little high mowing around trees, but it's simply amazing what you can mow with it.

    BTW: Don't google "Hustler" - it's HustlerTurf... )

    That's what I have. The Hustler X-1 60". Kawasaki 27HP just got it this year to replace a smaller John Deere zero turn that could not do the job on my yard. What a difference. Have to wear hearing protection though... That thing is loud when you engage the blades!
