Ok i run a scag wildcat which i love. It holds hills like a tank, it cuts incredible, and my dealer is to good to be true. The only problem i have with it is how it cuts in high wet grass. It clumps, and i have done things to minimize it, but there is only so much you can do. Also there is 3 different scag dealers all within my mowing radius(the one is the worst, but still well stocked), so if anything breaks i am not limited to just go back to my dealer which is out of the way. I used to have a dixie chopper, and that thing cut high wet grass like you couldnt beleive, it fans it out and i never had to clean underneath the deck ever, but it sucked on hills. The dealer is only 3 minutes from my house. He is ok to me and treats me fair, but not nearly as good as the scag dealer. Plus he is the only dixie dealer around, so i would be limited to going to just him, and he is a small dealer. He is somewhat stocked but not like the scag dealers. I have batted this around for months and i still dont know which way to go. I keep thinking about how much i have to work when the grass is so thick and wet. When its like that i cant help but think i will take the inconvenience of only one dealership over 3 just because that dixie will rip thru that wet grass like nothing, and i will not have to keep cleaning the deck. What do you guys think?
