I ended up getting the Kubota Kommander ZG127E. I test drove it and the scag since they were a bit together in the price range. I just overall liked the Kommander more. Would of preferred the Kawa motor off of the scag but like i've stated before, I haven't had a problem with B&S motors and doubt the new one would be any different. The price was a bit lower on the Kubota, as far as the ride i felt the kubota was a little better but nothing extremely noticable.
I purchased the basic model, no suspension seat, headlights, deck lift assist, or the Kohler motor.
I plan on picking it up tomorrow and hopefully getting a chance to do some mowing with it.
