    we used to use snapper mowers, and compared to scag there is no comparison. I have also used a exmark,and i will put my scag up to anyone and there exmark. I can make a better looking cut and a much better strip. We got our scag's at klei mower on colerain ave.

    that is a pretty bold statement to say your Scag can cut better & stripe better than anyones exmark. I too use scag & am very happy with the cut, but I would not go so far to say my scag has a better cut than any exmark. Also, I bet you do feel there is no comparison with Snapper, but dont include other brands with your dissatisfaction with snapper.

    We use Hustler Hydro W/B and a Toro Z-255 which will soon be traded in on a Hustler Super-Z. The Hustler W/B is pure grade A tank material and will out cut the Toro Z. The striping capabilities are much better on the Hustler. I love my Toro but the Hustler is a better machine.

    I figured out yesterday how to make a scag cut great. Run 2 of them, one behind another. That is was I saw, I guess when the 1st one plows it down, the other one can give it a finished look. Good luck at getting a scag to out do an exmark.

    Listen,

    Everyone is going to have what they think is the perfect mower. That's why they bought it.

    It doesn't do anyone any good to trade personal insults, so lets put the smart remarks to rest.

    Note: the post has since been removed, but I'll leave this here as a little reminder to all of us to keep it nice ;)
