    I know most of you are thinking duh! pick the scag but mostly i am wanting to know is bobcat a decent mower? Found a 36" scag walk behind($950) and a 36" bobcat walk behind($600). I mow as a "side job" so im on a budget for a bigger walk behind. The scag is older than the bobcat. Is it worth it(parts,maint,reliability)to just go for the scag or go with the bobcat?

    I'm assuming they are equal other than the price? Are the both floating deck or fixed deck? What motors do each of them have? With a belt driven walk behind I don't think there is much difference between machines... use your gut!

    Which dealer, (bobcat or scag) is closer to you. I would say that whichever is closer and easier to get parts for would be the way to go. And how many hours on each machine?
