What size cheetah do you have?
I have a 61" Cheetah with a mulching kit and a stripping kit.
Buying new is always good but you can always find good deals on used.
I just recently bought a Scag Freedom Z with only 8 hours for $2500 on Craigslist. I also purchased a 36" Scag walk behind hydro for $1500 on craigslist and it was also in great shape. There are a lot of companies that go out of business and are forced to sell off their equipment, keep your eyes open for it and take advantage of it.
