Thanks to a lot of help on here last fall(especially from Tacoma2000) when I purchased my first commercial ZTR. I looked at every brand under the sun and eventually chose the Scag Turf Tiger.......Anyway......Yesterday while I was on the road for my job, I happened to drive by one of the dealers that I shopped at while I was looking for my new mower. This particular dealer sells Dixon and Ferris. However, when I drove by on the highway at that dealer, I saw them mowing THEIR OWN yard with a Scag!.....Now I am not posting this to start a brand war, because I know there are a lot of good brands out there, but this just happened to hit my situation right on. I am also aware that in another area the Scag dealer might be mowing his own yard with a Dixon or Ferris! Anyway, that just made my day. I hope I havent offended any Ferris or Dixon owners out there, because I was really close to buying one of them because they are great mowers too, I just happened to get the best "deal" on the Scag. I was only pointing out how ironic that was.
