Side topic - what do you guys do to not tear up the grass when turning?
New tires are going to tear a bit...especially wide ones, as they wear they will be fine.

I have three 36in 17hp kawasaki scags with advantage decks. I haven't done my research but what is the main difference between advantage and velocity decks? What are the pros and cons of both?

It had 3hrs on it when i got it.

I have both a turf tiger 61" with an advantage deck and the new tiger cat 61" velocity. I never really had any complaints with the advantage until i used the velocity. The biggest difference i've noticed is how well it spreads the clippings. Stuff i used to have to double cut now doesn't need it. The velocity doesn't care if its wet or dry, and i have used it on all types of lawns and it always seems to leave a perfect manicured look no matter what the conditions. If I ever remember I'll post some pics.

scag tiger cat

If any of you are looking for a 48" tiger cat I will more then likely be selling one next week for about 6000.00 and it has 6 hours on it with the suspension seat. I am dealing with a bank I do work for to take it as part of payment for the work I do for them. Just wanted to put that out there so you may save a little money. I believe it has the 25 kohler command engine on it.
