DC does make a heavy residental version.

Apples to Apples here?

I can hang any hill on a Scag V-ride regardless of the slope. It usually comes down to the operator. Scag > Dixie Chopper any idea. I love within a mile of Dixie Chopper and may have found a friend dead beneath one, but neither influence my decision.

DC top of line for years but everybody else is catching up
Im a tall guy and the DC fits me all others feels like a Ford Escort
You sit on a DC like a F350 truck
Comfort one thing I like about DC
1 pass clean cut no double cutting
I havent found one hill/slope I cant mow
I been riding them since1985
The closes dealer to me is 3 hrs one way
I still will buy DC over other brands

So buy the Scag You cant handle a DC

Yes it comes down to the operator

@OP
You will notice some people are fiercely loyal to their brand and there is nothing wrong with that until they start ignoring reality. DCs look like they are built in someones back yard and are riding on their reputation from years ago. As far as double cutting with a Scag, they are known to have one of the best cutting decks out there and definitely the best when you are talking about a wide range of cutting conditions.

I think the posts almost unanimously answered your question.
