“Exmark. I’ve owed all walk-behinds from them, but I’m about to get my first Exmark zero-turn. I’ve dealt with a lot of walk-behind mowers in my career, but Exmark is a die-hard brand. They start up on first pull no matter if they’ve been sitting for two months or over the winter. The next time they come out they’re ready to rock and roll with no problem. That’s why I’m an Exmark guy.”

“I’ve used Scag since 1989. Although I’ve used other walk-behind mowers on and off, I always returned to Scag. Scag is consistent, dependable and durable.
It’s a timeless, proven design that doesn’t need to change or update. Scag is a simple, commercial, authentic, go-to intermediate walk-behind mower.”
