I have an 09' Wildcat 52" velocity deck for my lawn of just over an acre. I probably have 200 hours on it and am very happy with it. I bought it new after looking at several models. At that time an Exmark dealer brought me a 60 inch deck model to try out. I liked the mower but found it wasn't nimble enough for my yard with several trees. I knew I need the smaller deck and went for a test ride of the Scag tiger cub (I think). It had a 48" deck and very nimble. Looking back, I probably should have bought that, it would have been more than enough for my yard but by then I wanted the Wildcat with the liquid cooled 26 HP Kawasaki. I also had the suspension seat added. I wanted that seat because my yard is a bit rough. I thought I couldn't get that seat on the cub but when the dealer told me I could it was too late, I wanted the Wildcat.
