    I finally broke down and bought my first ZTR today. After looking at many different brands I decided on a scag tiger cub. I've only used it about 1 !/2 hours but it cuts great so far. The steering takes a little getting used to though. It really cuts down my mowing time.

    Don't worry, in a few days you will feel like you've been steering it since before you were able to ride a bicycle.

    I picked up my third ZTR today. It is a 26HP Kawasaki Liquid Cooled Bad Boy. So I can share your excitement.

    Have a great day,

    I got my first ZTR at the beginning of the season and I love it! I don't know how I ever managed without it. Good Luck and welcome aboard.

    Saves on fatigue, increases productivity and profitability. Good choice. I hope you are happy with the machine for many years.

    It was $7100. Very good dealer support. I've bought alot of equipment from this dealer and had no problems. That had alot of influence on my decision. I went to high school with 2 of the mechanics so that helps alot in getting an honest opinion about the equipment.

    I was in biz 4 years before I bought my first one, I dont know how I ever survived without it! Biggest 2 differences I could tell was LESS fatigue and increased time saved on every yard by at least 150%. You will never go back! Hope you enjoy.

    I bought my first z, also a tiger cub, earlier this year. They make the job so much easier. Better productivity, less fatigue. Also got the triple bagger collection system, gets the lawns that request bagging done in almost no time at all. I'll never be without one on the trailer again. Have fun with the new toy. :D
