I can definitely see complaints about the controls. Wright has everyone beat in that department with their quad controls or whatever they call them. Used to have a customer with a very old Great Dane stander that I hated moving or driving at all compared to the Wrights. The Toro/Exmark is a bit better with the double bars where the old Great Dane had a single bar I think. Have not driven the scag before. It just looks clumsy to me with where that huge pad is in related to the platform. Also to the poster with the mythical magical lawnmower that is so perfect....either post pics or STFU about it. Maybe you can find bigfoot while you are at it.
