    For deck size it depends on your properties size. I will be demoing scag and cub commercial in the spring. From what I have seen/heard you cant go wrong with a scag.

    I've used Scag equipment since the early 90's. Built like tanks, still use the first one I purchased, a 32" belt drive. All the new mowers are very good, go with the dealer who will support you the best and you should be very happy.....good luck in your decision

    I bought a Scag Wildcat, 26hp LC 52" last year. Good cut and cannot bog it down. Would definetly do it again.

    Good advice from Outlaw. I've used Scag walk behinds since about 1997. The Scags are built like tanks, my 48" is on its third motor and second transmission, it still goes out every day and is a great machine. My 36" I bought in 1998, it goes out every day and is still on its original motor and transmission. My Ferris walk behinds have been good machines, but have not held up as well as the Scag.

    Like the ad says Scag simply the best!!!!!!!! Used Deere and Exmark and the Scags are where its at. BULLETPROOF! Oh and did I mention? Go with the Scag.
