    I am just starting out and don't have any yards yet. I want to have good equipment to get started (I have a murray rider now LOL). I looked at the Scag Wildcat yesterday, and the Dixie Choppers Coatsville last week. I haven't looked at the Hustler yet. I was looking at the 52" models in all of these brands, but there is not much price difference in the 61" on the Scag.

    I like features of all three, but just don't know where to go from here. Anybody with experience with these brands, feel free to jump in.

    I am running an xmark 52 ZTR
    and am buying a Hustler WB
    Also tried the Super Z,,,,and that would not have been a mistake either.
    I like the controls and ease of service with the Hustler.
    I tried a Scag,,no thanks
    Can't help with the Dixie.
    Where will you get the best service ?

    I am not a big DC fan. I do however like Scag, Hustler, and Gravely
