They have some pretty nice mowers. I was looking at the Tiger cat 48 inch model. Does anyone use scag ? Does anyone use scag that used to use exmark ? Just looking for some advice. Before I make and 10,000 to 12,000 investment I just want to make sure I did all the research.
Yes we run scags. Nice mowers. Turf tiger is a tank but too heavy IMO. I like the wildcats much better. Last year I had a new laser z for about two months while one of mine was rebuilt .i loved it. The guys loved it. It cuts and throws awesome. If you go scag go wildcat or cheetah. Love the scag v rides too. Bought one last year , blows toro out of the water

Yea I got a 07 4 door f350 powerstroke.. Just bought a new 20' enclosed trailer in dec.. Going to push for big landscape install jobs this year.. I bought a 4' Harley for my mini and a 6' Harley for my bobcat 773.. Only thing I have left to do is get my truck and trailer graphics done.. I got the design ready just have to wait for the weather to break.. Appointments only right now at shop.. Opening back up full time end of march when weather breaks.. If you ever need something let me know I'll take care of you

I want to try and run scag and exmark on the mowing crew.. Velocity plus for the damp wet grass, then afternoon when it drys switch over to exmark.. I don't like how the exmarks clump up real bad in the morning with dewy grass..
