    I am thinking about getting either a scag or an exmark walk behind, the exmark is a little bit less expensive than the scag, but it is only a few hundred dollars difference so i would rather pay more now and get a better lawn mower than have to pay a lot more in service fees and maintenance, which mower do you think it better? Which will give me the better but? I was also looking at the toro, how do all of these compare, which is the best?

    scag is better than exmark if you had the choice go with the scag. Also the handles on the exmark are better. The scag has alot more thicker deck than exmark. I use to have the metro 36" now I have a hustler zero-turn. Hustler has the t-bar that is like riding a scotter and it is very very easy. check hustler out before buying anything then decide. I like the hustler

    ive used an exmark tt 60 inch hydro it stripes nice and is reliable it has a 20 horse kohler it throws the grass out no problem even if it is tall seems to be a good deck design iv seen other mowers have problems cutting grass that has been fertilized and cutting on day 8 thats my 2 cents but i havnt seen any scags yet

    I would go with an Exmark because the new ECS(Enhanced Contol System) handles will save your hands a lot from trees and such. I own a Exmark Viking 36" hydro. It cuts a lot of grass, even when it has just rained. A perfect mower!!!!!

    Good Luck!!
