Scag or Wright?

I currently own a 52" stander and while I can't say I really have any problems with it I've always heard great things about Scag. What are your opinions on the two of them. Looking to get the 48 Scag V-Ride and/or 61 turf tiger. thanks

Before you buy a turf tiger look at a wright Z its a lot lighter and fast.

Fuel efficiency will vary with motors. On the turf tiger you can save on fuel with the diesel, or save on price and go with the 35hp vanguard. Turf tigers go for around 10k or nearly 16k for the diesel. I have been doing a lot of research in turf tigers lately.

I will tell you we have a 48 and 52 vride.
Both kawi motors 24 and 26 horse and they consume probably 1.5 times the fuel than on our 52 walk behind with the 21 kawi

Stander x's are the best. We have 4 of them. Quicker and more agile than the v ride.

Cost more then a vride and I heard the cut quality is lacking

Stander X's are great. The cut quality is good. You need to sharpen your blades at least once a week. I agree they are extremely agile and quick and don't take up as much space as the v ride. V rides are good too. It's just what you prefer.
