    Hey i am just about to purchase my fist lawnmower. I want to know which is a better buy between Scag and Exmark.

    I like the Examrk metro 48" & I like the Scag Scag SW - Belt-Drive Walk-Behind 48"

    Help me choose between the 2 mowers.

    get a hydro first off youll regret it if you get a belt....

    scag vs. exmark = ford vs. Chevy

    I'd go with the exmark due to the ECS controls

    We have been using a 36" Exmark ECS belt, and we are taking delivery of an 48" today.
