    I am getting ready to buy a scag wild cat 52 inch cut, 25 hp kawi, 10 bushel bagger, and striper kit. The dealer is telling me this will run about 10200 does this sound right? The Turf tiger set up the same will be about 1000 more. Would it be worth the extra grand for the turf tiger. I am quite excited about this because I have been running used equipment most of my life with the exception of a 21 inch snapper commercial . My old mower will finaly earn a place to rest as the back up mower.

    Yes, the Turf Tiger has a very low center of gravity, wide stance, and is a bit heavier built. If you are mowing mostly smaller properties then maybe a Wildcat. A 60 inch deck is the way to go with a Turf Tiger though. you will need a deck that wide so you can trim better with the deck. I love the Tiger but I mow mostly 1/2 acre and up. I am no expert on the Wildcat. But I would want a heavier mower for bagging but I may be wrong. These other guys can help you out.

    That sounds kind of high for a wildcat. A turf tiger would cost a little less than that down here.

    Price would be about right around here with the extras you are buying. That bagger alone is some serious moola.

    I would agree about the SCAG TT for hill work, although some hills are just too dangerous no matter what ZTR you ride, so a WB is appropriate.
