    Hey Guys -
    I'm picking up a new Scag Tigercub this week. I'm trying to decide between the two engine options. The 24 Briggs is 5oo less than the 19 Kaw.

    The 19 Kaw is a time proven motor.

    My salesman reccomends the 24 based on the fact that I will be bagging during fall cleanups.

    There isn't much of a motive to sell me a ztr that is 500 less except my personal satisfaction. Any thoughts?

    Thanks pc

    If the Briggs & Stratton is a Vanguard, go for the B & S. :usflag:

    Why does everyone ask the same question. This topic has been covered at least 3 times this month. Just do a search and find your answer.

    I guess we all ask the same question cause it is the easy thing to do.

    I am a teacher and I have students ask the same questions as all my other students. It gets annoying, but I can't blame them. They don't know. So I inform them.

    The reality is I didn't ask a very good question.

    I want to hear from someone who has been running a 24 briggs in a tiger cub. Ill search for it, then I'll post if I cant find it!*trucewhiteflag*
