I personally haven't used it yet so I can't really comment on it.
Give me an update on the 52" turf tiger with the 29 hp Kohler efi.

Today I had to take the Cheetah to the dealer to get checked out. It wouldn't start this morning for some strange reason, checked everything and it all seemed ok. Didn't have time to tinker with it and didn't want to waste time, it only has 130 hours so I took it to the dealer. Im guessing when they were assembling the fuel pump a piece of plastic/Teflon strip got in there? The owner of the dealer showed me a balled up piece of plastic, like a the size of a rolled/balled up straw wrapper. Well just glad it wasn't anything serious and the mower will be out there mowing tomorrow...........actually I will be out there mowing, I like to mow with my crews when I get days off. people think im strange because that's how I choose to spend my time off lol

From zero to two in less than a month.

Long story short....

Long time visitor but newly registered. Not a scrub - just mowin' my own property and hate cheap equipment.

At any rate, I used to mow with a 72" grooming mower behind the JD 60Hp tractor and the wife trims around her lawn pretties with her DC 3360 (AKA Fred Flintstone's "flintmobile"). Back in July, the tranny took dump in the JD (warranty problem) and the grass is still growin' so I picked up a 61" V-Ride. After two weeks, it was time to do the first service on the V so I headed over to the dealer for materials. That's when the TT hopped on the trailer and no one could get it off. The cut quality is so much better with the Scag equipment, the tractor and grooming mower are now used in the pasture areas or when four-wheel drive is a must.
