I think both Scag and Gravely are good mowers, I guess you will have to demo both and decide for yourself
It would be interesting to know how many recommendations of one mower being better than another (at the same dealer), are solely based on how much commission the dealer stands to make.
I'm sure that plays a huge role, after all, the dealers are in business to make money, as much as they can, and you can't really hold that against them...especially in tough times like these.
