    I priced the 61" turf tiger w/ 28hp Cat diesel shy under $16k. I think the 2011 Turf tiger for $9k w/ 0% for 48mnths is my best option.

    I dont have a walker so i cant debate very well but my biggest regret is getting rid of my exmark 60 with the 35hp briggs vangaurd. Its power and speed go along way after 35-40 hours a week of mowing.

    Im sure a walker is a great mower but i hate the controls, and hate the third wheel mark but with a diesel engine in small deck and mower, i bet it would last thousands of hours. You will replace everything before the engine goes.

    Jacob, I think the scag for 9k is your best option. Good luck with the decisions!

    scott dont confuse him like that. im a scag man too, but walker is deff his best bet. i just did a commercial yard today and it was about a foot tall of sticky weed crap and my walker never clogged or thought twice about bagging. get the walker and do yourself the favor, youll make money from the walker.

    Well atleast when I checked my bank account balances, I have a few grand more than I thought. Lol. I really need to take a day to myself and just relax a little. Can't wait for my big meeting with the Highschool in the morning.

    You need to be aware the Walker mowers are finish mowers and have a more complex drive system that can be damaged more easily. The Scags are tanks that can handle properties that are less then ideal. Just remember those big mowers are for large mostly flat areas only. I bought a 52" years ago think it would be great and save time but it was too big for most of my properties. I had scalping in the high spots and 6" tall grass in the low spots. For residential use it's hard to go bigger then 36 if quality is the main goal.
