Scag Vs Lesco Walkbehind

Which 36" belt drive walkbehind you recommend Scag SW or a Lesco belt-drive? Which leaves a cleaner cut, is more durable?

Also, if you would recommend something different, just post a reply telling me what mower you would choose.

Also, I bag and will get a velky for the mower

SCAG...and all I have ever used was Lesco, until the last couple of seasons(Toro now).

SCAG is in my opinion still a GREAT product

Lesco walk behinds haven't been made in a few yrs. Scag is and always will be one of the best walk behinds with plenty of parts available.

I have an older 2000 lesco hydro that still cuts and runs great. Had a lesco belt drive before that. Great mowers, however since they don't make them anymore . the scag may be better for parts and other type of issues.

A lot of people in my area use Lesco walkbehind mowers and have had great results the only problem I see with them is parts availability.
