Exmark vs. Scag?

I have always used Exmarks for all the companies I worked for and last year when I bought my own and started up I got a 52" Exmark wb. I love it and dont want anything else, but I have a problem, I dont have a legit dealer/service up here for it. Our best dealer sells Grasshopper(own 2) and Scag. Was wondering how the Scag wb's compare to the Exmark, never really had a chance to run one. How good is the deck, does it mulch well, hydros worth a damn? Let me know, cause I'm about to get another 52 and a 36.

scags use the same hydro/engine options as exmark and they are good mowers but scag mowers dont cut as good as the exmarks too bad there is no support in your aera

I would have to disagree here. I use Scag and demoed Exmarks many times and find that my Scags with advantage deck cuts better and also disperses clipping way better than Exmarks IMO. Scags are great machines.
