Well it was a little confusing but I went and checked on the Turf Tiger my dealer was pushing again. It has the 61" Velocity deck so it must be an 06 and he assures me it is. It's odd that it has the 31 hp Briggs since it is not listed in the 06 brochures but anyway the velocity deck was the most important thing for me. $8,500 and tax I don't see how I could go very wrong with this purchase even though I haven't cut grass I have no doubts from the reports I will have no trouble with the velocity deck. I drove it in a very rough field and it drove and handled fine. I seem to be getting used to the dampening or maybe this one has a bit less than others I've tested. I called Scag dealers within 100 miles and they said they couldn't touch the price (in fact they said I better jump on it) so I took a chance. It has solid ROP so that will have to go but other than that I'm liking it so far. Wish me luck, even though from Scags reputation I don't think luck will be a problem. We'll see. Thanks for the advice guys and Audrey!
