    I wouldn't say cut, but I agree with you everything is built to keep up with scag. My exmark does slightly better on cut quality (much better) but can not handle the wet tall grass anywhere near how scag can. I think if scag came down in price they would be the ideal machine for running crews, it really takes someone trying to kill the machine to do so.

    Same here, I agree. Scag cuts good all conditions, built like a tank. Exmark a bit more refined machine with an excellent cut but won't handle the tall wet grass as well.

    My cubcadet commercial Tank is built like a Tank and leaves a beautiful cut. I think Cubcadet commercial and Scag are probably the heaviest built.
