I demo'd the Scag cheetah and the Gravely 460. I chose the Cheetah. You will find, in your research here, the Scag deck handles grass second to none. Good luck in your research.
that was my general question, would it perform as well under "imperfect" cutting conditions as the SCAG would.
Looks like there is a sig difference in the spindle quality/design also, the Bobcat is maintnence free, where as the Scag's is greasable, the Bobcat uses a 1 in shaft, the Scag uses a 1 1/8...the bobcat uses normal ball bearings, the Scag uses taper bearings
