That's a nice looking machine. What made you choose a tiger cat over the other models?

Suspension seat is nice. My 48 tiger cat doesn't have it, but after hopping aboard this new one I'm beginning to think it wouldn't be a bad investment.

I originally wanted another 48 tiger cat but the 52 came with a suspension seat and fx motor vs fs motor on the 48 and no suspension seat so for nearly the same price ($100 dollar difference) between the two that was an easy choice to make.

The tiger cat isn't too big so it's good on the types of properties I will cut. A cheetah or turf tiger would probably just be overkill and no real benefit for me. If I cut larger more wide open areas I might look towards different models but the Cat seems just right.

The 52 vride is my favorite mower of all time. Maybe it's because it's my first mower, maybe because it just kicks @ss. But it's awesome and that's all I can say about it. The 36 vride is better than a 36 walk behind if your like me and don't feel like walking behind a mower. It's a good little mower, cuts nice and all that. It's a little more "darty" in steering than the 52 but it's just more narrow so I think that's why I feel that way. If you need it for tighter spaces it's just fine.

If I had to choose I'd be on a vride over a tiger cat every time. I bought the 48 tiger cat as a backup to my 52 Vride incase I ever needed it. It was the only mower I bought used and wasn't looking but stumbled across it on CL with only 200 and some odd hours on it and it's a 2012 so I bought it.

The new one I bought has a bigger engine and I needed a dedicated bagging mower this year so that's why I bought the new one. Bagging kit will stay on at all times. Could have put a bagging kit on the 48, but I'm fine with adding more iron to the fleet.

My 52 vride is 26hp and the 36 is 20 hp. They have since de-rated all engines. It will be the same engine as mine but it's something like 23.5hp now. Same engine though. Just like the tiger cats used to have 24hp kawi, now they say 22hp. Still, same engine. It's a legal issue so they had to lower the hp rating.
