    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 :D
    Pete you are missing out....
    John, well, your right these aren't toys :p 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!

    Oh yeah, it's a '99. I thought it was a TTHP but I see nowhere it says "HP". Anyone know if they made a 17hp manual blade clutch TT in '99?

    You won't beleive what a deal I got on it.... well I thought it was a good deal.

    This was weettt grass..... I've yet to perfect the overlap on it, still in the mindset of driving that Scag... thats a garden in the foreground (weedy veggy garden).

    Thanks Pat.

    Nice machine, congrats! What are your plans for the old Scag? Did you trade it, or are you going to keep it as a backup?

    Would like to keep it but don't have space and need the money.
