    Considering Great Dane and Scag. Any thoughts on pros or cons to either as far as maintenance issues? Also open to other brands at this point.

    I have a 52" 23 Hp zero turn Exmark, a 48" 15 HP WB Gravely Hydro floating deck with sulky. Theonly problem I have had with either, was the park brake shoe on the right side of the Exmark was misadjusted and started squeaking really loud. It's fixed now and I love them both. Gravely also makes zero turns that are really nice. I have been told by a Toro dealer that they (Toro) make Exmark (they look almost identical, but the fit and finish on the Toro is a little nicer) It's all in what you want to spend your money on.

    I have both Scag and eXmark wb & riders. The wb both are great mowers but the riders eXmark will always be the best mower.
