    I have been looking on this site and have been getting some really good information. I see that most people talk about Exmark mowers. I have a 2 SCAG's and a WRIGHT STANDER and find they work very well. Is there something better about Exmark that i do not know about or is it just personal preference?

    That's exactly what it is.

    I have both. The Scag is longer, lower, heavier built, and holds hills better. The Exmark is more compact so it feels lighter and more nimble. It might cut slightly better but its a close call. Both have been reliable. The Scag is more open and easier to service. The Exmark steering levers were easier to work until I replaced the big steering dampers on the Scag with the smaller Exmark dampers. Now the steering effort is equal. Either mower will do you a good job.

    I own Scag mowers and like them alot. I think the only reason I didnt go with Exmark was the aluminum spindle housing. They are probably fine, dont take me wrong I have no experience with them. I however come from a manufacturing background and am skeptical about the durability of that material for holding your bearings straight over time.
