    if you want to compare like mowers then I would recommend trying a hustler vs. the Scag. If your goal is simply to compare mowers then try any that are from dealers nearby you. Personally if I wanted to run comparisons on mowers I would want like machines, i.e. Ferris vs. Exmark, Toro vs. Deere, etc. I own 2 scags and if I were to switch brand loyalties for whatever reason, I would go with Hustler.

    I like hustlers, but first: they do not make a ztr with a 48 in deck i belive, and second: there is no dealer close to me, the closest one is about 2 hours form here.
    Thanks, Joe

    You might want to take a look at the Ferris IS 1500. They are very nice machines and reasonably priced also.

    I looked at 52" Scag Tiger cub and a 52" Toro....went with the Toro because I like that dealer better. Both are good mowers. Ive been very pleased with the Toro.
