I went to my dealers annual Pro Day which was bigger and better than ever this week to put in my order on an Exmark Lazer HP 52"/23HPKawasaki. I had my mind made on this because I am apart timer, cut only residentials, and owned Exmark walkbehind which I was very satisfied with. My dealer started selling Scag this year. While talking with one of the salesman who has ALWAYS been a Exmark fan, he was telling me all of the advantages of the Scag over the Exmark. He said that I would have a great mower with either, but made several points about how the Scag was built better and would actually cut better in certain situations because of its deck design. I stuck with my guns and bought the Exmark, but he made me wonder if I had really bought the better mower. They were priced basically the same. What do you think?
