Z-Cat pricing

Joe,

I just bought one in the Mid-Atlantic, for $4,900. Another shop had them for $4,950, and all the rest were much higher - closer to 6k (might have been $6,100). Somewhere along the line, I think the pricing changed, as a few dealers were shocked at a price in the <$5k range. One dealer was and is trying to sell a used Z-Cat 42" for $4,850, with 50 hours on it.

I hope this helps.

z-cat is around 5,200. Tiger cub is 6,200. I would spend the extra grand and get a 48 inch tiger cub. It is faster, has wider tires on the back, more hp, and you can attach a bagger in the future if you want to. Z cat can not use a bagging system.
