Default Hustler Trimstar Vs. Scag Pro-V

I am joining a friends landscaping business this coming season and I am in the market for a walk behind. I am currently between the two mentioned in the title. Anyone have any advice that could aid in my choice? My buddy currently has a Hustler Fastrack super duty and talks highly of the brand but has no experience with the model I am interested in. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Steven

Can you demo either models to see what you like or dislike about them?

The dealers that i have found so far have not had demo models available. I would really like to demo both but not sure if i can find a place that will have both available to demo.

Is it possible that there might be others within a reasonable driving distance to check them out?

We have seen on here many times, how one lawn care business owner likes a certain brand for a certain reason that another will dislike for that same reason.

I have a Scag ProV 36 and love it. It is dependable and cuts well. The only drawback is that it is a pull start. The 52" has an electric start option.
