today. As I mentioned before, I am looking to ease my way into the lawn business for my later years of working life and am trying to educate myself on equipment. This dealer told me that the ferris was a better ride and the scag cut better. At first I felt that he was pointing me toward the ferris, telling me that it had more features at a better price. Then, after mentioning possibly getting a bag, he told me about a bag that he was going to put together with a scag from a closed dealership that would be a very good price. He carried redmax and echo trimmers/blowers also. I picked up brochures for all of the products to look them over. I will go to the exmark dealer tomorrow. I know that exmark and scag are pretty well thought of here, but what about the ferris? Thanks for the help.
