Scag or Gravely

I am considering a new mower. Looking at Scag Tiger Cat or Gravely pro turn 148. They both look like good mowers, but the Gravely is less expensive.
The Gravely has the option of the EFI Kohler engine and the Kawasaki twin. The Scag just comes with the Kawasaki engine.

I'd appreciate any advise or comments about these mowers. Any comparisons would be helpful and appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Both are amazing machines and you would be happy with either. I have run Scag for 15 years but am now replacing all my equipment with Gravelys. I have been so impressed with Gravely after bleeding orange for so many years. Gravely has the best customer support hands down. I spent about 3 months demoing machines last fall and this spring from almost all the manufacturers.

I own a 148z and a Scag Tiger Cat. The Gravely is commercial grade and will get the job done but the Scag is on another level in my opinion. I do a lot of double cutting with the Gravely. With the Scag I don't have that issue.

The stripes in my signature are from a Scag. They're built like tanks too.

Why not go for a V-Ride?

I love gravely, but im sure both will do great as has been said. That being the case, buy the mower from the dealer that give the best service.

Good service is pretty invaluable. 9 out of 10 dealers around here treat you like dirt.
