Scag ZTR Questions!!!

I'm in the market for a new Scag zero-turn. Looking at the newer models I would probably say I am interested in a Wildcat or Tiger Cat either 48" or 52" deck. Is there a difference between the two and as far as pricing goes what should I be looking at to get a fair deal on either of them. Obviously I need a great commercial mower and from reviews I can tell the Tiger Cub or Freedom Z aren't built to be a long-lasting commercial mower? Is that a correct assumption? Any input on pricing or experience with these mowers would be great, thanks.

Freedom Z = no comm, Tiger Cub = Comm. Velo + is a great deck. Cuts & stripes nice here is Ohio. Good luck with your purchase.

What do you mean when you say no comm? Do you mean not commercial? I'm looking mainly at the Wildcat vs. TigerCat and the only difference I can tell between the 2 is that the Wildcat requires oil cooler and the other doesn't.

Tiger Cub and Tiger Cat is same mower. Just renamed to Tiger Cat. Wildcat has a few more bells and whistles but pretty much same machine as Tiger Cat.

Great Mower!!

Great Mower!!
How much did your TC cost you and how much should I be looking to pay for a 48" TC? Also, is there a big difference between getting the 19HP engine and 26HP engine?

One of the main differences between the tiger cat and the wild cat is you can get liquid cooled Kawasaki on the wild cat.
