    I have two scag turf tigers and i see maybe 1 or 2 other companies around me with them, mostly i see exmark. Ive never used an exmark. what are the pro and con of exmark vs. Scag.

    around me scag is alot popular. every exmark i've see clumps really bad. Stripes are good, just the cut sucks. also the frames seem alot weaker as i've always seen them welded up in spots.

    I have all scag and love them. I have the old deck for a turf tiger and it hardly clumps, even in wet grass. and i feel that their decks are built stronger.

    Both are great machines, I guess it all depends on your local dealers, I don't have a local scag dealer......I'm glad in a way, I have an exmark dealer 3 mins down the rd, Great service, great machines....So I guess I have to go with the X-FACTOR

    Question on the emark........some one please tell me.
    I have just bought a new 52"W/B Turf Tracer HP and when the guy was showing the test run ( so to speak ) when we engaged the blades, while standing leftside of handles,you can see through a opening and see the pully for the belts for the blades.The problem is that they wobble really bad in my apenion. Doe's anyone know if this is ok? when I said something to the guy he said that that was normal.....It just does'nt look normal to me....Waht do you guys think?
    Thanks for all your input.
