As the title says I got a new Scag yesterday. Got a great deal so I couldn't resist. I have been running a 61" Turf Tiger with an Advantage deck and I can't believe how much nicer the Velocity deck cuts. In my opinion its the best deck out. I have run exmarks, kubotas, john deeres, hustlers, and toro and nothing even compares. By the way the new mower is a 61" Tiger Cat with a 25hp kohler. I'll try to get so pics up soon.

Be sure to add an aftermarket hydro cooler if you regularly mow more than an hour straight at a time.

Yes, I own a 48" Scag with a 19 kaw, that's one of the best investment I've every made. The mower runs like a CHAMP!!! How much did you pay for it?

$6500? Wow, you did get a great deal. The Tiger Cat is a really good mower and the Velocity deck cuts beautifully.
My dealer has the 61" with a 27 Kohler for $8399. Did you get a suspension seat?

No I didn't get the suspension seat, the seat thats on it is pretty comfortable.

Man you did get a deal. I just picked up my tigercat 25hp/48" rider two weeks ago and love it. Having a slight issue with the new tires not tearing up the grass on turns, but I am slowly getting the hang of it (first time for a zero turn). I paid $8320 for it.

Side topic - what do you guys do to not tear up the grass when turning?

New tires are going to tear a bit...especially wide ones, as they wear they will be fine.

I have three 36in 17hp kawasaki scags with advantage decks. I haven't done my research but what is the main difference between advantage and velocity decks? What are the pros and cons of both?

It had 3hrs on it when i got it.

I have both a turf tiger 61" with an advantage deck and the new tiger cat 61" velocity. I never really had any complaints with the advantage until i used the velocity. The biggest difference i've noticed is how well it spreads the clippings. Stuff i used to have to double cut now doesn't need it. The velocity doesn't care if its wet or dry, and i have used it on all types of lawns and it always seems to leave a perfect manicured look no matter what the conditions. If I ever remember I'll post some pics.

If any of you are looking for a 48" tiger cat I will more then likely be selling one next week for about 6000.00 and it has 6 hours on it with the suspension seat. I am dealing with a bank I do work for to take it as part of payment for the work I do for them. Just wanted to put that out there so you may save a little money. I believe it has the 25 kohler command engine on it.
