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.

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.

        Comments about Exmark Quest E-Series:

        As far a I am concerned this Exmark Quest Zero turn is a very poor quality mower, Less than 20 hours of ownership and have had to have engine worked on as it would not start, Less than 24 hours of operation and had to have a deck drive belt replaced, which cost $90.00. I would NEVER buy another Exmark Quest mower and would not recommend spending the money for one as they are very expensive as far as parts are concerned and labor at the rate of $90.00 hour is by an Authorized Repair Center is ridiculous. Very hard to maintain and extremely expensive to own. Never Again will I own a Quest Model mower.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Prompt but very expensive.

              I'm 70 years old and both my shoulders need to be replaced. Prior to buying the Exmark I used a craftsman rider. With the steering wheel my shoulders would hurt badly after mowing. Now by using the arm rests and steering levers I have eliminated that issue. Just that benefit by it's self makes me love my Exmark. There a plenty of features on top of that that I really like that total up to great mower. Thanks Exark for making my quality of life better.
