scag tiger cub

I have opportunity to get a 2008 tiger cub with hurricane mulch kit with only 75 hrs for $5300 . It has the 23 briggs vanguard and 52 in deck.Is this a good deal or an ok one? underpowered? Theres not a thing wrong with it hardly a scratch has been well taken care of.What do you think?

See if you can get it for under 5k. Sounds like a good mower. I have a Cub with a 61" deck. The V+ deck cuts good anywhere. Not sure on the 23 VG engine. It's probably worth the 5k+ they want but it IS 3 going on 4years old. Are you buying from a dealer or private owner?

private. He did't know i was coming a dealer gave me his number and he lives near me and i stopped at his house and it was very clean. Can tell he took very good care of it.Briggs not my first choice and would like more hp but i dont really need it just wanting it...more is almost always better you know.

Dealer offered him 5000 without mulch kit. I would have gotten one seperately ($300) anyways plus its installed already.

The 23 vanguard should be plenty on that deck. If it were a briggs els or pro series I might say no, but the vanguard is pretty stout. I have a 24 Kawi on my 52" and it does great.

Its working on 4 years old. I sold a 2008 Tiger Cat here for $3500 here last season, but it had 200 hours on it.
