    Anyone have any experience with these 2 ztr's. I am running Scag wb's but the pistol grips are killing me so thinking about a Z. I like the way both of these look but don't know anything about either of them.

    bad boy crushes the competition in bang for the buck. What price range are you looking at?

    Keep with the Scag name. You can't go wrong.

    I have demoed bad boys and they are ok machines but dixie's I have used for years and they are very good and trouble free machines! Make sure you have good dealer support!

    The Dixies run and cut fine here. I hear few complaints from owners. They haven't won any beauty contest, but neither has Badboy.

    I agree on the beauty contest with the exception of the new Silver Eagle HP! that thing is sharp at least brand new it is! It might not after it gets dirty!

    Sold my Scag Tiger Cub for Walker Last year, unless you have only Large areas to mow, IMO both waste of money. The Walkers take 11 decks 2 pins (GHS or SD decks) Diesel/Gas, liquid/air cooled 31hpmax soon 38hp, I have Commercial accounts that are 15acres, gas stations, resturants, Gated yards that are 42" or less that open up to massive yards 5 acres Walker does them all (try that with a 48"Scag or Dixie Chopper). The Controls on a Walker are awesome two fingers not arms or hands fingers, cruise control holds forward speed at all times, no more fatigue. I could never sustain the max forward mowing speed with my Scag, poor cut quality, my kidneys hurt, sore butt, etc. Hence the Dixie Choppers are for large areas only they are just cumbersome heavy. Have you looked at the Walkers yet?
