About 30 miles away is a place that sells Hustler and Bobcat. My top pick right now is a Toro MX5060 (50in deck, fabricated deck). There's a place in town selling a used Scag Freedom Z, 52" with a Briggs. Asking $3200. Thoughts on the used Scag vs the new Toro MX5060?
Also, is 30 miles too far to go to buy a mower? My concern there is service. I don't have a way to transport the mower. The Scag dealer and Toro dealer both seem great and both offer pickup/delivery services.
Thanks for any thoughts!
I like the Scag, compared to the Toro. However it would depend on the condition and the hours on the machine. Usually you can tell right away what you have with a used machine. I would also take a peek at the Hustler Sport.
