    I've been in business 2 years and going strong, but I lack the wealth if knowledge you guys have about al the machines etc. I got a 2012 Tiger cat for a few reasons, but the customer support is where it's at. Gotta be a great machine that is reliable, dependable and awesome cut quality that leaves striped without a kit (at least my expectations :) ). I will have to try one out and thanks for explaining that as I am new to forums also.

    Well, you bought a good machine with a proven track record. Scag's are built tough and cut awesome, especially in the rain/wet.

    There's a wealth of knowledge to be learned here from guys like GMLC and a host of others. Most all are more than willing to share it and help if you have questions.:)

    Ridin is right on. Just someone(a troll) trying to get everyone bent out of shape. Don't worry about getting off topic, Im as guilty as anyone with that! I really like the flip up handles. I can get my fat azz out of my air seat!!! You made the right choice with Scag. That machine should serve you well for thousands of hours!!

    I have family in New Bern NC. Great place to live, go a couple times per year!

    You agreed with me as can be seen above, so what can agitate a person such as yourself in this manner when only discussing "lawn mowers," this is honestly a little hard to understand?

    I have operated the older style JD, and I like the looks much better than this new box store look they offer today.

    I will say this, and hope you can refrain from losing it. I have a friend that bought, owned, and operated a new 72" JD for 3 yrs, it was traded for a 72" Hustler Super Z HD and the person made this statement, "after using this new Hustler it made my JD feel like a toy in comparison."

    I did not say this, but it came from a person owing and operating both machines. The difference being felt was due to a heavier, longer wheel base mower, and the reason I have no problem understanding how this could be said.

    I operated the JD and it was fine, just not fast enough for my application. The ride was not nearly as good, and the hydraulics and operation was not nearly as refined, but to someone that had never had the privilege of operating a SZ HD, it could have been the best mower they ever operated.

    Back on track please.....

    Here is a video attempt by me showing the X-Factor 2 discharge. It is much less concentrated than the XF1. This was shot at 8am with typical heavy NH morning dew. Sorry the vid isn't the greatest...

    I think, if I remember correctly, you're the one that brought the JD's from your past employer into the picture...is that right or wrong?

    I only commented on what you introduced into the thread, is that correct or incorrect?

    Love it, but hearing about you, Ridin' and prostreet makes me interested in others. I wonder about te cheetah and the turf tiger, but I will leave that alone and look around. I am gonna check your video out when I am done for the day or at lunch. I live the beaches especially the outer banks and the fishing there. It's cool..just pulled up to my next lawn.,

    No puppy, I didn't agree with you at all. The picture of the JD GMLC posted was of a model exactly like mine, and that's the one you were making fun of.

    I have absolutely no problem with what you think, you have your opinion of how it looks, and I have mine, but there is one thing for sure, your opinion or my opinion is of very little significance concerning the matter of how any mower looks.

    A difference of opinion is exactly what it is, a difference of opinion, which in reality means absolutely nothing. You throw thoughts out, I throw thoughts out, people then decide on differences they may want to look into themselves.
