    I have a 60" exmark at the farm,and a 44" exmark at home. They have both been excellent mowers. I too haven't felt uncomfortable on medium slopes,but always make sure it is dry. I will never go back to a regular mower. I think the major brands of commercial mowers will all serve you well,just pick the dealer you feel most comfortable with.

    I'm surprised I didn't see anyone list Ferris. Ferris makes some very good machines, a couple different styles of zero turn. They also make Snapper pro which is a lower cost version of the Ferris machines. Ferris was one of the 1st with 4 wheel suspension and they also make one that drives kind of like a motorcycle with the way you sit on it and grab the handle bars. Of course Ferris is made close by and has a lot of dealers.

    Dixie chopper is popular with home owners around here, but they seems to have raised their prices a lot.

    2013 Kioti dk40 hst, wright stander zero turn

    Default Re: Zero Turn Mowers

    I have a 2000 wright stander 48" with a 23 hp Kawasaki. It's been a workhorse for me. I love that I can ride it up into my pickup. Just step Off it to pick up debris. On uneven ground I think it's the safest machine made, you can just step off it. We have a 54" or 60" xmark with the same motor. It's so a nice machine but I like the stander better. It's also much simpler, less to go wrong and much easier to keep clean, takes up less space in the garage, etc. wright invented the stander and toro, deere and others gave made copies.

    Yep, surprised that I haven't heard more about the Ferris Evolution Zero Turn.

    I have heard that the suspension works good and makes a big difference on rough ground.

    Pretty interesting machine.

    In theory I like the stamped deck better for the curved corners. I would think the grass would flow out of the deck much better without clumping and sticking to the deck under side. In practice, I found my farm king welded deck(rfm) stayed much cleaner underneath than my deere deck, stamped, 62c,62d and the z465. Just my observation.
    Carefull what you aim for, Aim for nothing and you will achieve it with amazing accuracy.

    IMO what hold this back is the cost vs deck size, only up to a 52" deck. The only time I see this in a landscapers fleet is when it's used with a larger machine. I've never seen only this on a trailer or being used on a yard. I only know one personally that owns one and he always has this with much larger zero turn. He likes it and uses it in smaller areas and where there is a lot of obstacles to mow around.

    Not really, I don't have your typical neighborhood home and garden lawn. It is more on the order of typical rural weed and grass.
