Quest E-Series

Discover what landscape pros already know.
For starters, they know if you want a professional cut, you’ll need a professional-grade mower—like an Exmark® Quest, the original premium residential rider. The Quest E-Series offers Exmark® powered engines, backed by a three-year consumer warranty. It delivers pro-like productivity with zero-turn precision, mowing up to 2.8 acres per hour at speeds up to 7 mph. And, as you’d expect from a machine of this caliber, comfort is strictly first class—from the premium, ergonomically designed seat, to the cushioned control levers, right down to the vibration-reducing floor mat.

        Comments about Exmark Quest E-Series:

        After 179hrs and 6years my quest sits unusable for the 5th time. Yes another cutter assembly seized up. This is the second assembly, not to mention 3 blown pulley assembly's to date. The rep for wi came to look at my quest last year and said if you was your lawn mower after use the water gets into the bearings causing failure, don't believe it. So this year I quit using water and still I sit with failures. Funny they put a was system on the deck but water is not good for the bearings. He did give me a set of blades for my troubles though, that was great! I'm fed up with this unit and will be returning to my dealer to trade it in on another brand, maybe a Murray. I am very disappointed in this product that was supposed to be the last mower I would ever need to buy, according to the sales rep, that it drove me to actually write a review for the first time in my life. I have already been asked by three friends over the years and told them to not buy an exmark based on my troubles. I will continue to make it a point to turn people away from this inferior product when asked, as it is not fair to spen between 3-4k $ and have these type of problems and get lame excuses from the local sales rep.

          Thank you Exmark for making a great mower, first time in years I got on a mower in spring and I didn't have to work on it. Thank you Kawasaki for making a great motor, motor fired and ran on the first stroke of the motor after setting in a cold garage all winter!! I won't own another mower!! Thanks again!!

                Was told by co-worker to buy Exmark. His father is a professional landscaper/maintainer and he said it's the best brand in the business. I'd never heard of them before, but once I owned one, I saw them everywhere--especially on landscaper and grounds maintenance trailers. Very glad for his recommendation.
