Who makes the best mower on the market? Clearly asking this question can cause a heavy dispute between any lawn care professional....so lets start it!

I really enjoy my Walker mower, but I do know they have their faults. Despite their faults I stand by Walker. Who do you choose?

Check out my other forum.... Echo vs Redmax vs Stihl - Who's the best?

Personally i like Kubota because thats what i run and have not had 1 issue with it to date! but i know a lot of guys are all about Scag and Toro. I know Kubota is newer to the Mower Market compared to alot of others Brands but the quality is there for sure!

I have several different mowers. John Deere... Bobcat... Hustler and Toro. They all do what they are supposed to and cut the grass. But my personal favorite is a tie between bobcat and Hustler. With the toro coming in a close second.

Exmark Stand-On is easy to control on hills and wet conditions. Also when customers see you standing over sitting they assume your working harder.

My favorite brand is scag because it has worked the best with wet tall grass and my dealer is like a mile away from my house

I suppose this could quickly turn into the classic "Chevy vs Ford" debate and I understand different equipment is more readily available in some areas and not in others and that plays a role but I'll just jump in. I have really enjoyed using Grasshopper mowers for a long time but my favorite mower would be Wright for many reasons. Very low maintenance, excellent performance, UNMATCHED support from all levels of the company etc. Just great products and great folks to deal with. Just my .02

I love Honda push mowers and the Toro Titan HD ZTR's. Affordable and commercial-ish.

I would like to think Gravely commercial mowers does but thats just what I have used for almost a decade. The brand has been good to me.

For small mowers in the 21" class I say nothing beats the Honda commercial hrc216. I used my first one day in and day out for 10 years as my main mower before I replaced it for cosmetic reasons but I still have it on stand by. For large mowers I like the walkers. Tough to beat the cut a walker leaves behind. Plus great for tight places or highly landscaped yards. The GHS system is fantastic for leaf cleanups as well.

I'm one of those 'there is no best, just what works out for you' guys. Unfortunately I don't have enough experience on different mowers to have an opinion. I have used my Big Dog Alpha for a while now, and it has performed admirably with a few quirks here and there. Can't complain as it is residential grade!

At this time I am running Scag's the VRide 52 and SWZT 36 both do a great job for me with minimal problems, but on my Bermuda properties I am getting my best cut from a John Deere WH48A that has given me lots of problems.

I have been testing some different mowers and I am leaning toward the Exmark for the 2018 season. The Radius X 48 and the Commercial 30. I can do 98% of my properties with the 48 and a couple small yards I would use the 30 on total.

I think the hard part is finding that mower that really fits you and cuts all your grass types well. We have Fescue, Bermuda, Zoysia, and Centipede properties we service.
