i only have two that are acre propertys the rest are gated lawns .i got to use it all day i love it i never double cutted nothing and i had a lot of leaves on my lawns today .the biggest problem is getting use to turning rh leavers or lh leavers to quick i pulled a muscle in my arm .also i tried putting it on full speed and i almost hit into my customers car .im not ready for the speed yet but stripes up beautiful nice flat cut. i do workout a little bit but i guess not enough because my forearms are saw as hell from the quick turning it the mower actually man handles me unless i slow down like im brakeing for the turn i guess your supposed to do that.i never through on the grass gobbler because i personally dont think i need that was a waste of 200.00 i side chuted all day work out great but definatelly need mulching blades for my cleanups .also i had a lawn covered deep in leaves i noticed alot of blowout so i switch into slow cut them up nice .all in all im happy with the scag the advantage deck definately works and ill keep the postt rolling after i use it more.i personally think it was kind of pricey but hope it pays off big time.

I think many of us could understand your loathing of the grease gun. Have you tried the kind that have a lock on the gun. When you pull back the plunger, the lock keeps it from sliding so you can load the gun. Since I upgraded, no more grease bath... well at least not til I crawl under the machine to reach those xerks. I tell you, one of the best inventions is the locking pnematic grease gun. This baby saves me some serious time, and they are barely more then a normal grease gun.

The same setup would cost $4308 if you chose a Gravely instead. Therefore, the Scag price isn't too out of line with the rest of the didn't get ripped off.

He could have gotten my Husky 48" ZTR for another $300. It will cut rings around that Scag, and a much nicer cut. Not to mention the increased fatigue because he will have to chase it or stand on a sulky.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons. Because you are crunchy and taste like chicken.

Scag makes one of the best walkbehinds in my oppinion, I have 2 52" hydros and there's nothing realy i can say bad about them. I like exmark riders but I think Scag makes the best walkbehind. The next walkbehind I buy will most likly be another scag. Good luck with your new machine. Oh yah try doubles too, they work awsome with the advantage deck.
