    I can purchase a new Scag Wildcat 61in with a 27hp Kohler for 7300.00 or a Bobcat 61in with a 26 kawasaki for 7900.00 out the door. What do you guys think the better machine is. Its going to be used on four 9 ac. commercial lots next year...the lots are flat fields...I have a Scag now and love it...but the Bobcat seems to be a great mower....

    Stay with scag, it is less confusing blades and belts you will have two front machines.

    Get the Scag but tell him you want either the Stihl FS80R or the Stihl FS100RX instead of the 261. You will be getting a better trimmer to go along with your mower.

    I think the scag is a great machine, but I would personally steer towards the kawasaki engine. I have not had best of luck with the kohler.
