    I am looking for opinions on the Scag SWU36 - 48. I am wondering how these mowers compare to a Toro with similar features. I am curious about the floating deck. The Toro mower I use now does not have one so I have trouble with scalping. Any comments are appreciated.

    I just bought a Scag Ultimate 48 Hydro with the floating deck and it works great. The same yard that scalped horribly with a fixed deck Encore, did not scalp the first time with the deck set at 1.5&quot;.<br>I am very happy with the way it cuts.<p>----------<br>Steve Harris<br>From The Ground Up Landscaping

    MY 48 ULTIMATE CAN CUT CIRCLES AROUND ALL YHE OTHERS! WE WILL STICK TO FLOATING DECKS FROM NOW ON NO SCALPING NO GRABING JUST A GREAT CUT.....SOMTHING ABOUT THE DESIGN OF THE SCAG DECK...NOTHING COMES EVEN CLOSE TO ITS PERFORMANCE....DEERE,GRAVELY,BUNTON,YAZOO THE SCAG DOES THE BEST!

    You don't need a floating deck in most circumstances. Some yes, but not most. <br>SCag leaves a MUCH better cut than Toro.
