    What do you want to know?
    It is the Turf Tiger platform, shaft drive deck. 61" suggested sale price is $15449.99. 72" is $15964.99. My dealer hasn't got one yet, but they have all of the literature.

    the 28hp CAT is an incredible engine. If you like the Turf Tiger, you'll definitely like the CAT. It's a 1.13L engine. :)

    I'd still like to see a light 900cc class 3cyl diesel with a turbo.

    30+hp and 60lb/ft

    Power when the going gets tough, economy when it's smooth sailing.

    no turbo, but you ought to go take a ride on a 31hp Kubota, that is a very powerful diesel. I was impressed with that machine on a leaf job last fall. It had a super deep deck and never bogged, even in wet deep leaves.
