    I have a quick question about mower frame durability. I understand the differences in measuring steel thickness in gauge format. 7 gauge, 10 gauge, etc... If a frame thickness is 3mm how does this relate in regards to gauge thickness? Makes a difference because i need a durable frame and John Deere only list there frames as 3mm and i do not how to interpet this. Any help would be aprreciated.

    I think Scag is about 7 ga and have reinforcement panels that are 10 - 11ga. I would guess they are just about the strongest?
