    I couldn't agree with you more about the scag freedom line. I would love to have a scag tiger cat but can't justify the couple thousand more dollars. If I was going to use it commercially absolutely but I have a big problem. My back gets real soar sleeping on the couch and that's where I'd be sleeping when my wife found out I dropped $8k on a mower for just our yard! Lol

    If you can hold off, wait and see what Gravely comes out with....that is what I am doing. There were pics of it at the GIE show but no info. It looks like they took their Pro Turn 100 and removed a few items from it like the canister filter:

    This was posted in another thread, $6100 and is based off of Gravelys high end Pro Turn frame/mower, which are built like TANKS:

    Might have to wait a little longer to see that one. I really tile the Pro 100 but once again put my foot down on $7200 bring to much. This one might be a good medium between the pro 100 and the zt hd. I didn't like the zt quite enough to buy it even though the price was tempting.

    My local dealer said March 2013 is when he will get his in......If the 52" is $6100, then a 48" should be less and one heck of a machine for that $.

    I'm looking at several different dealers for my equipment. One of them sells both Scag and Hustler. I was leaning toward the Hustler FastTrak SD 60" with the 26hp kawasaki because it was less expensive than the Tiger Cat I first considered. But just tonight I see the dealer has posted new pricing for the Hustler on their website and it is now the same as their posted price for the Scag 61" Freedom Z with the 30hp B&S. I also see on the Hustler website that their commercial lineup has changed for 2013. The FasTrak SD line is now listed under residential and they have two X-One models and two Super Z models in the commercial lineup. Just when I am about to complete my business plan I have to rethink the whole thing!

    I completely understand! I was pretty much settled on the hustler fast trak with the 691 Kawasaki. One of the biggest factors was the scag freedom in the Kawasaki was only 19 hp. Well just yesterday I found out they have just released a freedom z the now upgraded to the same 691 Kawasaki the hustler has! Crap!

    Looks like kubota will be offering a zg100 series. Zt3100 trans 5" deep fabbed deck, 22" rear tires and a suspension seat. Also built in led headlights integrated into the front frame. Looks like a very nice mower
