    I have been looking into purchasing a 48 or 52 inch zero turn this year. Looked at bobcat and exmark but from the information I have gathered I am really leaning towards a scag. Anyone :help: encountered any real problems with these machines or anything to look out for. Any feedback would be great.
    Thanks

    We have two Scag Tiger Cubs both are 48/19 Kawasaki, one is a 2003 with 430hrs and other is 2004 with 172hrs. They are great machines and the only thing we have done is routine maintenance and replaced the belts about every 150hrs or so.

    Seacoast...The Scag is a great machine. Take a look @ the wildcat or the tiger cub. If your going to buy one go to Frenette's Power Equipment in Hamden. Commercial service is the best around :D . Don't use the dealers in Guilford or Killingworth, service is horrible. Got to get ready to go out & sand/calcium. See ya around this season.
