I feel like I should try to work with the mower shop near me instead of going to a larger place like Louisville tractor, because I'll probably get my mower serviced at the local store. Also, the store quoted me $6500 for Briggs and Stratton freedom z vs $7300 for Kohler freedom z. Is the Kohler really worth $800 more?

Your not going to find any new Scag with a 61in deck or any for that matter for 5k around Louisville.
Bluegrass Lawn and Garden does have a new closeout 2011 Scag Tiger Cat with 61in deck for under 8k with Kohler, if you were considering spending 7300 for the Freedom Z.
