So first off I want to start by saying I've heard about the "benefits" of buying used. Also I know financing isn't ideal but the mower is the only thing I'm financing, everything else is paid for. Plus 0% for 48 months I'd choose to finance even if I had the money. I have 1000 flyers for marketing, 8 residential accounts already, and one commercial account worth 4 residential accounts. That one commercial account $ will be put into a seperate bank account to make my payments during the 2012-2013 off season. (incase we get no snow again next winter) I hope to have 30 accounts by the end of this summer. My mom is very connected in b2b sales so I should have more commercial accounts in that total 30 I'm aiming for. With all said here is my delima I can not figure out which Scag I want to finance! I have been to Hustler, Gravely, Cub, and Toro dealers but the Scag seemed most helpful and is closest to my house also he services and is well reputable. Exmark isnt close at all so they werent an option. So I dont need anyone trying to sway me.
I am torn between two mowers the Pro V walk behind (with ride on attachment) or a Tiger Cat. Both models I am looking at getting the 48" deck to start with. Later down the line I plan on getting the Turf Tiger 61" deck. The Pro V will run me $5600.00 new with a Kawi engine(plus cost of ride on attachment), the Tiger Cat will run me $6,800.00 new with a Briggs engine.
So which one do you think would be best to start with?
Also does anyone know how much the RSS ride behind attachment is for the Pro V? (ive been having a hard time finding it online)
This choice is literally driving me CRAZY, I dont want to make the wrong decision.
Also thanks to all the people supplying good honest information on this site it has really helped me out, and screw the ones who hate on people and always negatively criticize new comers and their ideas.
