Snapper Pro vs Scag

I am looking for a new ZTR for this year if my advertising goes as planned...

These are my current choices and they can change by the minute, but I would like to see what you folks think...

Which do you think is the nicer mower that will last the longest and is the best value

Scag Tiger Cat 48" STC48V-651FS for $7300 with 15.2 hours from the dealer was loaned out 1 time supposedly.

or

Snapper Pro S150 STC48V-651FS with the 26hp Vanguard brand new $6299.

The Dealer support is with the Scag, I would have to travel to Atlanta to pick up the Snapper...

Thoughts

Can't comment on Scag but I'm a huge fan of both Ferris and SnapperPro. If it were me I'd take the new SP and save the $1000...but I also don't know how much of an inconvenience it is from you to Atlanta.

1.5-2 hour drive. I have family up there so I go a lot. But if there was a break down I am kinda SOL.

Yeah, that's a haul. It would make me buy the Scag. Tough to give up a $1000 on a great machine, though.
