Pros: Fast, Great Cut. Excellent Manueverability Made like a tank Made in the USA
Cons: Didn't buy one earlier.
I am a homeowner with about 3.5 acres of lawn to cut. I had a Craftsman 54" cut Garden tractor. It took me an average of 5 1/2 hours to cut my lawn and many repairs to the deck.
After three seasons of this, I sold the Craftsman and got the Exmark.
The difference is remarkable. I can cut my whole yard in less than 1 1/2 hours and it cuts even, doesn't miss grass at fast speeds, and is a pleasure to operate.
Well worth the hefty price tag. If you compare it with my $2,500 Craftsman and add all the Craftsman repair bills, it's not that much more for ten times the machine.
I am not sure how well the service will be on it because I never had a problem with it.
