    I know a lot of people are against Deere, but I know a lot against Scag, and as I am looking for either a hydro walk 48" or a small ZTR 48" I wanna know what you all think what I should get.

    Deere or Scag
    and what model


    P.S. NO ARGUING PLEASE :) just good honest opinions, maybe cut quality pics also

    Scag tiger cat 48". Deere something like a z737 with a 7iron deck. Both have a nice cut. Personally i would lean towards scag

    SCAG SWZ Hydro walk.

    In my opinion if you can only use a ride on ZTR that's just 48" wide, your better off walking than riding. You'll get finished quicker and have a much more versatile and cheaper mower.

    The 48" SCAG WB is also a nice unit to have as you get bigger and have big ZTR's.
