In my oppinion, a 60" deck has it's limitations.

I have a feeling they are trying to be a lot like Dixie Chopper. Other than that, the only thing I like are the wheels.

All I care about is;

Maneuverability - not just around obstacles and control in general, but whether or not I can get through narrow spaces.

Fuel Tank Size

Cost of replacement parts & Maintenance


At $4,999.00 - I'd keep browsing a bit. That's almost enough to spend on a high end Ferris.


You can look into "Walker" brand mowers, they are more affordable than Exmark.

I suggest looking at local dealers, it would be good to lay your hands on it and test drive them. Also you can get a good deal most of the time at a local dealer, unless the deal is too good to be true.
