I'm IN! Finally got a REAL commercial mower. I'm sorry for beleiving that the Scag is a real mower... it's NOT! This eXmark 52" Turf Tracer with 17hp Kaw twin will run circles around the Scag...Just awesome machine. Feels lighter because the hydros are more responsive and the ProSlide pulls the front up too much (needs adjusted in the mounting holes thats all) don't like the safety switch bars digging in my hands, other than that I can't say enough good about this thing.. Mikey now will you lay off Pete you are missing out.... John, well, your right these aren't toys but they're fun It handles nicely, mowed full speed through my somewhat tall lawn with ease, no missed grass, no clumps, just awesome mowing machine... needs an OCDC to control all that discharge though, it throws twice as far as the Scag. Superb machine. Love it!
