    from what i have seen i would say scags are pretty heavy duty, i have had 3 scag walk behinds and they were good not great. I am getting a new exmark walk behind this year purely for the fact it has the ecs, the scag handles will kill anyone using them. hope this helps. And get a hydro if you plan on keeping it for a while, much better than belt.

    have you heard if any of the better outdoor prouducts are any good i look at their web and see that you can only order them online and they ship it to you for like $300

    For the scag handles you can get lighter springs. They are nice you can work it with 1 finger literally and it does not affect the tracking or return in any way.
