    I tried one out and did a side by side comparison to the hustler I would definetly get one if you need a 60" cut or so. Awesome performance and there mower deck is just impressive. You could do a search on here and get lots of info!

    I would demo both machines. I liked the everide deck better but the machines are very similar.

    Just purchased a 52" scorpion today. The dealer sold me on everrides quality control at there factory in NE. More peole that I talked to about there riders are happy with them, and I looked at the deck on them and it is like none I have ever seen. Looks like it would do well with tall grass.

    Does the Scorpion have the Dane deck or the Everride deck?

    It is the dane deck. I was stuck between sufer 2 and this mower. The scorpion is exactly the same except for colors. I asked the rep about if the were planing on putting a everride deck on it and he said no.

    Anyone looking at Everride mowers, be very careful. I worked for a distributor that took this line on two years ago. The decks are awesome and the cut is fantastic. The problems with this mowers hydraulics are many. At least 25 updates to hydro system in two years. Lots of failures.
    Auburn Consolidated Industries has been around a long time as a component manufacturer for kubota, John Deere, and Ford New Holland, Now they make scorpion, great dane and john deeres twin track or qwick trac. they are all pretty much the same except the decks. however this is their first foray into the wholegoods end. They have their work cut out.

    The rep lied to you. They has been a lot of talk of placing the everflow deck on the scorpion.
