scag or exmark?

I currently have a scag TT 61 I am looking to get a second mower next year. I also have a 21 inch push mower. I have been considering a scag or exmark walk behind or a stand on mower but I cant decide which would be better. I am looking to get a 48 or 52 inch cut. My body frame is 6 feet 3 inch and I weigh 210 if size is a factor with either.
Can you guys give me some help picking between the scag and exmark machines whether it be a walk behind or a stander?
Thanks!

Are you mowing hills? What size properties? Are you solo and need to increase versatility or do you have a helper and want to increase productivity? We really need to know what your goals are.

We have a vantage I'm 6,2 225 and I don't have a problem with the front being light. But since you have a scag I would stick with one brand. Makes it easy getting parts and only having to deal with one dealer

I am a solo guy and Im looking for something to do small yards or hills where my Scag TT isn't going to be efficient. I want to know whether the stand on mower will be sufficient or is a walk behind with a pro slide a better option? I love my scag but I want to know if an exmark walk behind may be a better choice or the stand on mower. Who has the better cut and stripe? What motor and deck size would you all recommend?

In some respects a stander is like a rider only you are standing up instead of sitting. If you have hills a wb is the better option. Exmark vs Scag: that will depend on what you like. Each deck has its strong points.

I only have room for one more mower on my trailer so I want to make sure Im going to get the perfect complementary mower to my scag TT. The velocity deck is amazing but as far as exmark I have zero experience with the machines but my dealer sells both brands and the exmark looks like a good machine.

I own Turf Tigers and Exmark Lazers. I feel that the Turf Tiger is the superior rider... and by a good margin. I also own Exmark Turf Tracer WB's and have friends who have allowed me to run their Scag WB's and I believe the Exmark Turf Tracers are the superior WB's. They both cut great but I prefer the Exmark ECS handles and their floating deck design. It's tough to beat an Exmark walk behind. Scag has a new walk behind that has a configuration similar to the ECS system and a great deck lift system. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to demo one some time soon.
