I dont want to make anyone mad here, but it seems to me, that the Scag, or Deere, or Exmark owners for the most part, turn a blind eye to any other manufacturer. I always look for the best, most kick A** piece of equipment being manufactured, and in my area, there are others that seem to way outperform. I think if you took every piece of equipment, and painted them all purple, and place no name on them, where the Demo would be "blind tested", all 3 of the above would likely NOT be picked even by their most dedicated supporters. Now, I know Scag, Deere, Exmark makes great stuff, but I think there is better, and 60 percent of the users have not Demoed anything else. If I am way off base, well, kick my A** in this thread! Are the above mentioned users color blind?
