    Go with the Grasshopper. I now have 2 Grasshoppers with Kubota diesel engines and they are very nice machines. Our local Kubota dealer has sold tons of Skag mowers for many years. Last year he also took on the Grasshopper line. This year he is selling about 4 Grasshoppers to every 1 Skag. Once people compare them side by side, he says he can not sell them a Skag. Personally, I can see why. The Skag is a rough riding machine with a so-so cut in my opinion. My Grasshoppers are smooth to operate and leave a beautiful cut.:D
