Looking for new commercial zero turn

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the site. I've been searching for a new commercial mower as my other zero turn is losing power, and have come across a Scag Tiger Cub 60'' 25hp Kohler with 60 hrs. (demo) for $6800. Thought I'd ask if you all thought this was a good deal or whether I should continue searching. I'm hoping not to spend over $7-7500 in my purchase. If you think I should continue searching for a better deal, any suggestions?

dealer said warranty starts the day I purchase it. They'll change the oil, sharpen the blades, and provide full tank of gas.

That was one of the mowers i was considering back in the spring. Sounds like a decent deal on a very good mower. I would feel good about that one i think.

If you have a Bad Boy dealer close to you I suggest giving the 31 hp Kawi BB Outlaw a demo. $7499 new. You could probably get a better price being the end of the season. Much heavier made, faster, and adjustable front lip on the deck for different cutting conditions. Open access with patented swing away fuel tanks to parts for easier maintenance and repairs.

Bad boy mowers dont even come close to a scag. Bad boy's are ok mowers, but they are not a scag. You dont see any of the large lawn maintenace companies in the US running bad boys. I know the the manager of the Ohio's Brickman group and they have tried them all and they only run, scag,walker,toro, and exmark. I look at what the big boys are running, they mow more lawns then anyone and beat the crap out of there mowers, everyday.
Maybe if bad boy sticks around as long as the big boys, they will earn respect.

I know everyone who owns a bad boy is going to jump on the soap box. Go for it. I love it.

I just traded in my last of 3 Scag mowers for Badboy mowers. It all comes down to dealer support and the company support. I had problems with 2 of my 3 Scags with poor dealer support, and couldn't even get a call back from Scag. I have a great dealer for the Badboys, and the company actually has a person that answers the phone who then transfers you to the person who handles your question not an automated never ending recording. Then the mowers are 2 to 3k cheaper apples to apples comparison. Not an automated never ending recording. I only run 2 trucks with crews. I guess Scag is two busy taking care of Brinkman, Valley Crest etc to deal with small guys like me. Oh well......explans why Badboy sold more 60" Ztr's than any other company last year.

I know Toro, Exmark, Scag has special lease programs etc for the big companies. The companies just take whoever gives them the best deal that year according to a friend of mine who is on his own now that used to be a crew leader for Valley Crest in Dallas.
