    I have narrowed it down to 2 machines. A scag or an exmark 36" they both cost about 3500 new. Which one would you choose and why? thank you

    i would go with scag if you can GET A HYDRO if your price range is $3500 look into a used hydro if you can but i would say scag is the best i love mine

    Either machine is a good choice. I agree and go hydro if you can. I would be looking into Exmark. Those ECS handles are way better then pistol grips!

    I vote Exmark only because I run them and love em. I would definitely also say to go with a hydro.

    Obviously you are looking at belt drive machines and I can tell you we have had no problems with the two Scags we got. And never had any problems with pulling in rain like some guys report. Solid machine with grease zerts on spindles....get Kaw engine if you have a choice.
