Own a scag 60" tiger cat very happy with the cut. Would not go on these steep hills with any junk mower.
Scag, Bad Boy, Hustler, Walker, Grass Hopper, Toro, Exmark, Gravely and Dixon, and a few others other with decent mowers.
Min 12cc pumps, 16 even better, 52+ deck, Greaseable spindles+++, 27Hp+ EFI engine++++. Auto deck, suspension++
Cant compare brandx low end with brandy high end have to look at features. Kawi and Kohler Engines will command higher prices.
If i had the extra $$$$ i would get the ventrac turbo diesel 8 wheel with articulating mowers and other attachments.
Rated for continous slope operation of up to 35 deg.
