09 SCAG WILDCAT ( feedback request maybe for sale)

Hey guys, I got this mower today its got 130hrs on it 61in Velocity plus deck.Its powered by a beefy 30hp Kohler engine . I'm just not sure if I like it ? I don't know if I can get used to a small machine like this. I cut one of my propertys with it today and it is the best cut I've ever seen. I think I may want something like a turf tiger tho. I'm thinking of selling it for what I paid for it 7000.00 . The warranty is still good for another 15 or so months . Anyone interested if I decide I can't get used to it? I can email pictures if interested. You can also call me at 863 781 6793 SERIOUS BUYERS only.

why do you "feel" you need a bigger machine? you still will have a 61" deck and you will have a similar hp rating? maybe your ground speed is a little faster but i know i never mow at top speed any ways.

I have a tiger cub 07 fits anywhere and love the cut, but some days I wish I had more power and a bigger deck (though 61 seems big enough), I would think if you have a few accounts with rich open grass fields( and they generate good income but are time consuming), then go with more power/ bigger deck. It sounds like you made up your mind already

I'm not used to sitting that low to the ground. I have a 326 diesel Kubota and a 28efi chopper both with 60in decks. I think I would rather have the tiger with the kubota diesel, I just didn't do enough homework I guess.

I know it probally is good to have that center of gravity,but after riding high for all those years its hard to get used to, it doesn't feel right.
