Looking to buy another mower

    I am trying to decide which mower to buy. I have narrowed it down to a Scags Turf Tiger with the 72in advantage deck, or a Dixie Chopper XT300072 which also has a 72in deck. I would prefer to stay with the gas engine over the diesel, so I am looking at either 27 or 29 hp with the Scags or 31 with the Dixie. Any suggestions? My trailer is 82in wide so that is not a problem. Most of my accounts are apartment complexes. I have two Scags mowers already (tiger cubs) and I love them. The only reason I was considering the dixie is the productivity. They claim you can mow 8.6 acres an hour with the dixie. The scags only boasts 28 acres in an 8 hour day, which comes out to about 3.5 acres per hour. I am going to demo the dixie next week, and was just wondering if anyone had any input. Thanks

    Just found out you can actually get the turf tiger with a liquid cooled 35hp vangaurd big block.

    You can also get it with the air cooled 35 HP big block.
