Why not buy the walk behind? Do you have either of these machines in your fleet? According to most on this board, and in general, Scag products are some of the most over engineered, and over built units on the planet. I've been an eXmark / Wright shop for years, but this pkg deal seems like a good opportunity to replace some older equipment. The dealer also lowered his price to 10.5K. Scag owners, please feel free to drop an opinion....
