    My dealer is literally only 3 mi. down the road from me, making SCAG another selling point. I gave them a call yesterday, they are selling the 52" w/ Kawasaki engine for either $8,225 or $8,325 I can't remember exactly.

    If you google the scag website you should be able to get all your answers. I have a cub and a cat and have no problems. if i were to buy another i would go with the wildcat.

    That's the mower I was looking at purchasing, but they are no longer made. I don't need something as fast as the cheetah & the TT is just too big for my needs. The Tiger Cat seems to be the best mower for me, and seems like a reliable mower.

    The Tiger Cat is a full bore commercial mower. The cut is second to none. I'll say this, you're making a good decision and with the deck they have, it stripes like a bandit.

    We have a tiger cat and a cheetah both are great machines. The only thing i recommend is get the suspension seat if you get the tiger cat

    The Tiger cat is the new name of the Tiger cub. In 2010 Scag changed the name "cub" to "cat". The Tiger-cat did not actually replace the Wildcat but sales of the Tiger Cat and Turf Tiger way out numbered the Wildcat and so the Wildcat was phased out. For what you are looking to do, I think you will be very satisfied with the Tiger Cat for the long haul. The Tiger Cat would not be considered a home owner model (that's the Freedom Z), it is commercial grade and in my opinion is a better fit in most cases for residential cutting than the Turf Tiger due to how nimble and balanced it is. The SS model will ensure you have the right engine and the suspension seat.
