I plan to attend an dealer open house late next week. The dealer sells both Scag and Hustler. Of consideration: Scag Tiger Cub 48" deck, 19hp Kaw 48" deck, 23hp Kohler 52" deck, 23hp Kaw Hustler Mini-Z, 52" deck, 19hp Kaw SuperMini-Z, 52" deck, 25 Kaw I think he also has the Hustlers in 48" deck, but wasn't given info on those. What contrasts and comparisons should I make between these machines when I have them side-by-side? I'm interested in specifics between these offerings, not bringing other manufacturers into the mix. In other words, are there any strengths of one that is a weakness of the others that I should examine more closely? Yes, I've read many threads and everybody likes the one they bought (or nearly everybody). That does not help. Obviously, somebody who has both in their equipment list can provide the best assessment. I would really like to add a JD 727A in the mix, but I'm concerned about the dealer. The dealer with the open house is a large dealer for commercial mowing equipment, and related equipment, but the location is about 50 miles away. The JD dealer is only about 15 miles away, but deals primarily in ag equipment, and the commercial mowing equipment is almost a sidelight, only to round out their line of equipment. Most likely, any machine would be ordered in because of the lack of general interest in ZTR mowers. This is not the case with the other dealer (w/ Scag and Hustler). Maybe my concern is moot. I've had an Exmark for nine seasons, and never had it back to the dealer. I am solo with most properties of 0.5 to 2.0 acres, about 42-45 customers. I could use a ZTR on about 30 of the properties, but only exclusively on about 8 of them. I would hope the customer count would increment by 6-8 customers with the addition of the ZTR, and choosing the right kind of properties. I hope this help with the context of the intended acquisition. I was considering a 52" w/b with sulky, or 48" or 52" stand-on machine, but have abandoned that idea. Thanks.
