I am considering buying a ZTR. I'm 44 now and after mowing since I was 15, my legs are getting tired of it LOL. I'm considering, at this point, the Exmark Lazer and the Scag Tiger Cub, in a 48". (I have some gates that are EXACTLY that size) Right now I'm leaning to the Scag basically just because of the clincher -- it looks like the Scag striping roller is the best there is out there. Take a look at it on their website if you're not familiar with it. It is spring-loaded and makes contact with the GROUND the whole time. I'm sure it will outstripe the Exmark big-time. And I believe both mowers will be solid, dependable mowers in other ways. Any thoughts on this? Who here has the Scag striping roller? Do you like it?
