Default Commercial mower

Every dealer claims there mowers are the best.
Are there any magazines that compare commercial mowers? Like a consumers report?

Are you looking for riding mowers or push mowers?

I get a magazine called 'Landscape Management' and they review equipment on a regular basis...the last issue reviewed a bunch of stand-up riding mowers.

Good roundup there, but doesn't really compare reliability...

Not sure how up to date this is, but I remember it when I got my first computer around 2000.
