SCAG Cheetah 61" 36 Vanguard Price

I bought a new Scag Cheetah 61" with the 36 vanguard this year. List MSRP was $10,599. I ended up getting the Scag before taxes for $9,400. So do your research and remember if they want your business they will work with you. Also don't be afraid to price around.

The problem with price shopping on a scag is they space their dealers out so much that you eat up your savings with fuel costs.

Also compare sales tax as well, a couple of % can make a difference

I have also been looking to buy a 61" Cheetah. A company near Dallas had a closeout on a 61" Kawi for $8,999. Just be patient and willing to travel and you will find some decent deals.

Not sure when they change these, but they are the mowers that you can get the best deal on

Having had both I wonder why some pay 10 or $12 g's for brand name.

I saw a Scag Cheetah today with 61" velocity deck and Kawasaki 850fx.. dealer wanted $10,791. I thought it was kind of high.. and that was the national promotion price.. I'd swear I got a price a few months back for $9960 same vendor.
