We have been running Gravely 260's for several years now and love them. We just ordered a 148XDZ last week for some of the smaller residential and commercial accounts. We also have a great local dealer and that is why we stick with them. The Tiger Cub is a great mower. We looked at buying one but we don't have a dealer close by. You can't go wrong with a Scag.

I bought a used Tiger Cub 2 years ago. It took me 3 or 4 months to find one, and I had to drive 500 miles each way to get it. They are easier to find at the end of the season.
You'll see them on this site, Ebay, and http://www.americanclassifieds.com/ (where I found mine).
Of course, the price would depend upon the hours and condition. I figured that the average life was about 2000-2500 hours and prorated the value from the price of a new one. I bought one with just under 1200 hours for $3200 (probably high, but there were few to choose from). I figured that for my use, as a homeowner, it would last for a long time.

Thanks for the info guys. Do you think it would be better for me to get one, or since i only do 25 yards should i stick with my 48 wb.

If you only have 25 yards and don't plan on expanding, I would personally stick with the walkbehind, or maybe purchase a sulky if you don't already have one. I couldn't justify spending thousands for a 50" Z if I already had a reliable 48" walkbehind. But if you plan on increasing the number of accounts you have, I would go with a ZTR.
