    I feel an aneurism coming on....

    For acreage with easy access I would go with a front mount grasshopper 100% of the time. You really can't loose with a Deere or scag, but out of the two I would pick a scag turf tiger.

    I tend to disagree not to start a brand war but I hate Scag... and John Deere.

    If you look at any of the large companies($5 million/ year & up companies), they run exmarks and for a reason. Hands down best mower. That being said, not everyone can run them because of dealers. I will be buying a new scag this winter/ spring because of dealer location. The closest exmark dealer from my service area is a 30-45 minutes away and 15 miles from my service area. The local shop that i use carries scag and is at the center of my service area

    I couldn't be more pleased. I ended the season with 106 hours on the Outlaw XP and 23 hours on the Stander. I love em. And for the price I paid at the dealer, combined with the service I get, hands down, the best thing I've done since I've been in business.

    Get a SCAG, they just run and run. All around real commercial mower. Simple to work on and parts not difficult to get in a pinch.

    Sorry everyone for the delayed response I have been busy with my winter job driving tow truck. The reason I didn't put scag on there is the dealer that is around me seems to treat me like I know nothing. I also know some people in the industry that have found the same thing with the scag dealer. I have actually seen people switch to Grass Hopper because of it and they are one of the closer dealers and seem to wanna treat me right.
