    Here are some updates. First off, I no longer have the Turf Tiger. After cutting once in the rain with the standard deck, I got rid of the machine. It cut terrible in wet grass. So I demoed a 48" Scag VRide. I liked it, but it was a little over my budget. So I ended up getting a Scag 48" Pro V. And I have been doing some more mulch jobs. Here are some pictures.. - Mike

    I bought the Pro V for $3,700. Both of those walk-behinds are great! I have the 17 hp Kawasaki engine. All of my work is in the suburbs of Cleveland. -Mike

    It was a demo unit with just over 100 hours, so it wasn't brand new. It's easy to use and very versatile. I would buy a second one. - Mike
