    I just recieved a contract with Parks and Rec Dept here in NC.
    I run Bobcats now. I went today to the dealer with plans on buying two more Bobcats. Dealer in Mt Holly, NC is a local hardware
    store. They are to slow on sales and service. After 35 mins of standing around I walked out. Now I"m looking at Scag and Exmark. Looking for info on dealers. Hows service from dealers? Which mower is te choice?

    Scag and ExMark both make good walk-behinds. My preference is for Scag because I had them first and got used to the controls. Both brands cut great.

    I moved this thread from the Lawnsite Announcements forum to here since this is where all the action is and where it really belongs. :)

    I have run both machines for about 3 years each. On the bottom line total for repairs i spent alot LESS on exmark. The scags were damaged constantly. No biasism here, just facts ppl.

    I own both brands of machines also. I do prefer the Exmark over the skag for the same reasons as Acute Cut.

    I bit the bullet and bought red.
    The $ on the orange sure does look good up front. But these things tend to turn around and bite you where you keep your wallet!
    I'm happy with my choice.

    BTW, I've the micro-mulch kit on mine f/t and wouldn't have it any other way!

    83% says exmark. I feel much better about buying one now.
