    I bought a Hustler SWB and couldn’t be happier. The H-bar beats the others hands down for me.
    I have friends that have owned Scags and put countless hours on them they are very reliable machines also.
    If it wasn’t for the H-bar I would have probably got the Exmark.

    That's the easiest way I'd sum up why I have three Hustler WB's instead Exmarks, too.

    Where is SCAG?

    Something tells me that they are #1 in intermediate walkbehinds.

    Cut was never their strong point, but are very well built and withstand new hires very well.

    From what I can see, it's not so much they are built well, but that there's a dealer every 5 miles. Also, from experience, it's also that the non (poor) speaking LCO's walk into the dealer and say they want the "Oranga macheene", not really knowing anything more than it's color.

    Hello all newbie here I have a 48 snapper and love it stripes like a dream. It is very durable and built like a tank.
