I love the Exmark and have zero complaints about it. It does everything I need it to. However I would like to upgrade and buy a 60" and mainly so I can put larger bags on the ultra vac. I have a couple very large properties that require bagging and right now I'm making about 10 trips to the truck unloading grass. Thats a ton of wasted time.
I will also say that even though I love my Exmark I have never used any other zero turn. The one I own is the only one I've used.

Question:

I have a Black Bear 44" and a Grizzly 60". They are two years old and run very well. What I am hearing from others in the business is that these mowers are trash! Kinda makes me feel like I did the wrong thing in getting these. Are they as bad as people say? Anyone use them or have stories about them?

they look to be fine homeowner mowers, the kawi engines are bullit proof but the rest is suspect I'm sure, but if they cut and make you money run them til you can upgrade to commercial zero turns.

Thanks for the information. I bought the company and this was what went wtih it. All the other is Redmax and they work very well. The dixons are cutting good so I hope I get my money out of them before they fall apart.
