I like Scag walk behinds.I do not even want to try anything else.As for a ZTR,I do not own one and don't plan on rushing out to get one any time soon.I would look at the Bob Cats though,they cut great and seem like a nice machine.My step brother has one on Michigan and it's a nice machine.The town I live in just bought some and the cut looks excellent.I would probably get the Turf Tiger though.So would you all say if money was not an issue that the Scag is the best out with Ferris second and who would fall into 3rd spot ? maybe Hustler ?
We run a Ferris and 2 scags. If the grass is wet might as well keep the ferris in the shop. Ours clogs up real bad. However the new decks are supposed to have alievated all those problems. But ours is no where near as durable as the Scags. The scags have 700 and 1200 hours on them and the Ferris has 500 - Scags will outperform the Ferris every time.
