    Hours and hours of online research lead me to scag. I originally was thinking the Cheetah because of the high speed but, learned than cutting at it's top speed was not practical. I got quotes from my local dealer for the Cheetah, then more research and then asked for a quote for a Tiger Cat. The dealer owner brought me a Tiger Cat to try out and I loved it. I'm at $9300 OTD.

    Haha, my Tiger Cat was delivered yesterday also. I hope the Toro does a great job for you. I'm happy with the Tiger Cat so far. The weather here has been crappy and the ground is soaked from all the rain/ice/snow. I could only drive it in the driveway yesterday. :(

    Always been on toro but now have a scag cheetah and it's by fay a superior machine over toro. I don't care what people say but if your land is smooth and the grass isn't out of control you can cut a 16 mph I've done it . But i mostly cut in low duw to the ground being rough . I also chose scag due to the taper spindle bearings . Double frame rail and velocity deck is nice .

    chevy vs ford toro gives a better cut on dry grass cuts blades up finer. the scag shoots out longer clippings and you can cut faster in the wet stuff. i own both. personally for me nothing beats a walker period.
