Let me guess, you own a Scag? I was more interested in the Big Boy, as it has the four cylinder Cat. The Scag Cat is 28 HP (3 cylinder) and the Bad Boy is 35 HP. I don't think there is much of an argument about which one cuts better, as those Velocity decks from Scag seem to be the best, but to be honest, I really don't mind that much if there are a few clumps of grass here and there. Thanks for the response.
