John Deere or Scag

I know a lot of people are against Deere, but I know a lot against Scag, and as I am looking for either a hydro walk 48" or a small ZTR 48" I wanna know what you all think what I should get.

Deere or Scag
and what model


P.S. NO ARGUING PLEASE just good honest opinions, maybe cut quality pics also

SCAG SWZ Hydro walk.

In my opinion if you can only use a ride on ZTR that's just 48" wide, your better off walking than riding. You'll get finished quicker and have a much more versatile and cheaper mower.

The 48" SCAG WB is also a nice unit to have as you get bigger and have big ZTR's.
