    man thats a tough choice, for me it would come down to the price, and the warranty and service. either way both machines are great. but if i had to choose it would be the scag

    Hard choice I think. Both great machines. Make sure the dealer support and service centers are top notch and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Make sure plenty of parts and supplies are in stock. Are you able to test the machines out? I know I can here locally. If you can try them both, see what molds to you better. Make sure you're satisfied with the way it operates. It's hard to go wrong with either of these machines. Congrats and good luck to you!

    for me it would be ECS over pistols. But that's just me.

    I too prefer the ECS. Other than that --Pick a color, both are good choices.

    Now if you had asked --Between EX Mark and Troy Built- That would be easy. Everybody knows that Troy Built is by far the best:laugh:

    The tthp has a floating deck and the scag has a fixed deck and the exmark has ECS instead of pistols. Get the exmark tthp
