    Ok so ive been searching Craigslist for a while looking for a 48 inch walkbehind. I've been thinking Exmark all the way but ran across this listing on this Scag. I'm sure I could get a good deal. What do you guys think? A good mower? What's a good price?


    2012 SCAG 48" Pro-V Commercial mower $3800

    If you have the cash in hand, I would say barter with the
    owner of that machine.

    Have you used a pro-v before? If you have not I would
    recommend going to take that machine for a test drive.
    Like many fellers on this site say, you either love them
    or hate them. We love our scag pro-v's!

    There are numerous threads on the pro-v on this site in
    the last couple years. I have been a contributor to many.
    Use the search function to find some more info about them
    from folks that use them.

    The word around the watershed is that Scag is going to
    debut a new hydro walkbehind this spring. Facts always
    go to show that buying a first year model of anything always
    has its drawbacks. Also more than likely the price point for
    these new machines will be on par with the likes of exmark
    and toro as well as john deer's astronomical pricing for these
    types of machines.

    It comes down to you taking the scag pro-v for a test drive
    in a yard. If you like it, buy it! And definitely barter with the
    owner on price.

    Dude no! You are only saving 900 bucks or so and get no warranty cuz scag does not transfer them. Spend the additional money to get a warranty or talk him down.

    Link to prices scag is running on them. They are dumping them!

    Buying new you can finance it and not spend all your money.
