    I am in Daytona and we don't have a lot of Scags around here. I think it is all how they are marketed in different areas. The dealer that sells Scag is really a John Deere dealer , so you know who they are pushing.

    Dixie Chopper was huge about 7-8 years back, until the same dealer started pushing Exmarks and now 80% of large services have them.

    I found that pitch is the most overlooked service on a mower. it makes a big difference.

    What mower were you using when you found out your gator blades and mulching kit didn't work well for you?

    What kind of blades are you guys using? With the Exmark I was under the impression you had to run the wavy mulch blades.

    the gators work with a plate but not kit. gators are really made for side discharge
