Well guys Im yet another new member looking for a new mower I have a Scag walk behind that has served me well for the past 11 years but Im getting tired of walking. Im going to put around 150 hours on it a year so it will last me many years, prob be my last mower purchase. I want to get the job done as fast as possible. Right now I leaning towards a Scag Turf Tiger 60inch 27LC and a Exmark 60 27LC. Im convinced that the 27 kaw LC is the only way to go. Longer life, quite, less vibration, and I think higher resale if I decide to sell it. And whats an extra 1000 if you are already spending 7-8 thousand. I mow around tons of landscaping so Im thinking of using the mulching deck for the entire season including leaves in the fall (which is why I think 27 hp is a good idea). I dont want this to turn into a Scag/Exmark battle but which do you feel would mulch better (with the kit), run better, and have less problems down the road. Ive also looked at some demo models. Do you think it would be worth saving 2000 dollars to get a 2002 model with 190 demo (prob hard hours) on it. In other words (in the scag line) would it be better to get a cub with 21hp 52inch or a tiger with 27lc 60inch demo (190hr) for the same price. Sorry for the long post but any help would be appreciated.
