    I went through the same thing last year at this time. I ended up going with the scag I got the turf tiger with the 29 hp efi engine and the tiger cub with the Kaw. I have never been happier my customers love the way there lawn looks. I did add the striping kits. They mount behind the rear wheels not on the deck and they can be folded up when not in use and when they are down they are spring loaded and provide pressure to leave a great looking stripe. You will have everyone on this site with there favorite mowers the truth is u need to get what works for you in your area in price, location, and reliability.

    I don't own one, and I haven't heard any reviews about em'....except one, and that is that Grasshopers are supposed to ride really well. But like Piscitelli said, "You will have everyone on this site with there favorite mowers the truth is u need to get what works for you in your area in price, location, and reliability."

    I don't own any of them but from what i've seen and heard i'd go with Scag. Ferris would be my second option. What type of mower are you planning on getting? walk behind, Zturn, ect.

    I am running two mid mount grasshoppers and I love them. To me the ride and controls are way better than the scag. However, the scag with the new velosity deck does mow wet grass better without clummping. I would say demo both.

    They are both good machines, To me if you have a few dealers in your area and they all sell good commercial equipment, it doesn't matter what kind of mower it is its about how the dealer will treat you in the long run, you have to develop a relationship with the dealer and they will take care of you in the long haul.
