    My first mower was an exmark walk behind, which I still own. Last year I purchased my first scag rider (24h.p.Honda,52"deck). I am very pleased with my scag rider, as well as the scag wb I used most of the time last year. The reason I went with scag is primarily because of the dealer/service in my area. As far as quality I feel scag is just as good of a machine, if not better.

    I have an Exmark 23HP Kohler, 52" cut and love it. Have not used a scag but I would buy another Exmark without question.

    Boturf, very pleased with the 24hp. It has plenty of power and I also like the canister air filter. I used it on some fall cleanup and it never bogged down through thick piles of leaves, it just cuts right through. I've always been a fan of Honda engines.
