Test drove a Cheetah and it is super nice. Just debating engine type now and how much each model retails for. Any known place to see pricing??

Thanks

Best price I have been quoted is 11,100 with kohler efi or 10700 with kawi 921 in 60 inch deck.

I can get a Toro 6000 with 60 in deck with 34 kohler efi horizon tech for 10200 through equine savings program. Still undecided and considering the 72 inch deck also. My neighbor just bought a Cheetah and likes it. He told me he had to slow down to get a comfortable ride though. My other neighbor's older turf tiger seems to give a better cut.

Dealer has demo Cheetah with 5 hrs on it with 850FX engine for $9299. Seems like this would be a good buy....

That's a good price and I would go with it. I think the 850 should have enough power. I just bought a Toro 6000 with 34 Kohler efi from Marshmallow on this site.

Got the Scag Cheetah with the 850Fx and mowed about everything I had with it this weekend. Absolutely no lack of power on hills or mowing grass in a hay fields that was pretty tall. Great machine and wished I would have pulled the trigger sooner...

Glad you like it, we picked one up for my neighbor with the 921 for 10 grand. He likes it. I like my Toro and have cut my pastures with it. So far it has not beat me to death. Great price you got it for.
