First off thanks for the great site and wealth of information that everyone brings. Now to my questions. We have a Scag dealer locally and if I wanted another brand I would have to drive a minimum of 75 miles, local guy can service everything, but warranty work would have to be taken to the other towns. So would choosing one brand of mower be easier made for you knowing this? Second question, I have been looking at the Scag line pretty hard because it is local and I am torn between the liquid cooled fuel injected and the air cooled offering, other than cost and maintenance what are the pros and cons of the two? Thanks in advance.
