    You may want to base part of your decision on the dealer. Location, service, parts, reputation, loaner machines, etc.

    scag costs much more as joe mentioned. go to their website (scag.com) and you can learn more about them in the "Why Scag" section

    that all depends on how the original owner took care of it. was it greased, was the oil changed every XXX hours. theres no way to say which one works better. IMO the scag cuts better than ferris but like i said, it all depends on how the machine was treated. if someone beat the crap out of it, never changed the oil, etc.. then it wont last. How many hours do the machines have?
