We have 6 mowers in the business and all are Scags. I'm going to buy 2 Cheetahs for next season. We are fortunate that Scag has an excellent dealer in my area. Everyone has their favorite mower brand for different reasons, for me it's Scag.

i just bought a tiger cat with a 27kawi and 61in deck last week and love the machine. I plan on getting another or maybe a cheetah or turf tiger great mowers built well and the new decks stripe awesome. I like the tiger cat because it is smaller and you can get under trees a bit better. i havent had any scalping issues yet and it does pretty good on hills. check out my work thread if u wanna see some stripes oh yea and no clumping like my exmark

striping

Forgive me for being thick, when I here everyone saying striping I assume they are talking about a striping kit?

My problem with Scag is parts availability. I bought a FreedomZ this season and the brake linkage fell off somewhere. Have had it ordered now for six weeks from 3 different places. Still waiting. Running now with no brakes. Will not buy another Scag for this reason. This machine only has 35 hours on it.

We have 3 Turf Tigers with velocity decks. They hold hills very well and discharge great. The velocity deck doesn't do very well mulching.

Is that with the actual mulch kit and mulch blades?
