    I have had experience with a 36" hydro. When I first started the guy that I cut for at the apartment complex I do had one and I used it for a season. It was a great mower. Very manuveriable and quick. His had a sulky on it. I personally love scags and if you got the scag you would be very pleased.

    Seems like a no brainer to me. Throw a $350 swivel wheeled sulky on the Lesco, and use the other $1,050 to buy some other tools, or for adverting, or stick it in the bank, etc........

    That price difference is a large one. You can easily put a sulky on the Lesco and have money left over. Which one is the better machine is the question I would be asking myself. Remember to demo both of the machines on similar conditions.

    I have never run a lesco or a scag, i would say i see more scags than lesco on the road.

    That would most likely be because there are more scag dealers in your area, and not have anything to do with the the quality of the mowers in comparison to each other.
