Hey fellas, just got a few questions about the scag models. First off, 90% of the time the mowers I have right now are just fine. I own 2 of the scag tiger cubs (the last year before they went to tiger cats)velocity deck 61" with 25hp koehler motors. I love these mowers! here is what Im running in to. Now that we are not in the crazy rainy conditions in Ohio now I am running the mowers as fast as they can go which is SLOOOOOOOOW. What I figured I would do is step up to the wild cat but See that they use the same 10cc pumps? Are you getting no more speed when you jump to the wild cat? That is my first question. I cant go with the turf tiger because its just to big for what I need. I have a 16ft enclosed and with the 2 cubs and a exmark 48 up front there is only a few inches to spare and the turf tiger is much longer than the cub or wild cat so thats not an option. hey here is a thought, has anyone ever tried to put bigger pumps on one of these mowers??????? I demoed a turf tiger that was much much faster than my cubs and the cut quality was the same even though I was running much faster. Id like to have more speed. That is the reason for this post....... Those cubs do a nice job but there like riding a turtle............... is going with the turf tiger my only option?
