    I looked at a new scag 52" hydro with a floating deck,17 kaw.
    It came from a dealer that gave up or lost thier Scag dealership and is at another dealer.
    It has been sitting outside looks kind of bad.Faded paint and some surface rust on the frame and pulleys ect.
    It will have all of the new warranty's
    The dealer is going to do a full service.
    For $2900.00
    This is probably more than I need for a home owner but it seem's like a good deal
    Is this a good mower?
    I can get a new Bob cat 48 hydro for$4050.00 or a Ferris 48 hydro $3950.00
    Those were just quoted prices
    Thanks again
    Doug

    That is a good deal on that mower and it will have plenty of power with the 17 kawasaki. We have two Scag Tiger Cub's and are very satisfied with them.

    Just returned from vacation yesterday.
    Got up Saturday to go do some dealing in the Scag mower.
    Well guess what!!!
    The $2900.00 price went to $3500.00
    I said no way ,you quoted me 2900.00 on the phone last friday after you had talked to your rep.and to get a price on it..
    The dealer say's his rep's boss was with him and changed his mind on the price.
    what a crock:mad: :mad:
