Grasshopper all the way if you want the hours your planning on using it for, just recently several Grasshopper users have come forward with 12,000 plus hours on there machines and still running them on their original liquid cooled Kubota gas and diesel engines, with my experience around where i live the scags are built very well but around here after a little use they all look like crap, its like the paint fades and starts chipping real bad, My grasshoppers are hardly ever washed and always look and run good! I demoed a Turf Tiger about 3 years ago and felt like I was driving a tank, you might also consider the weights of the machines I'm pretty sure the gas Scag your looking at is about 200-300lbs heavier than the diesel Grasshopper.
