Well I just got my new mower Thursday and have cut about 20 lawns with it so far. First off, what a nice upgrade from the previous SCAG Tiger Cub's I was using. I find myself reaching for the old controls on the tiger cub, but I dont miss the cub at all. The cub had a 52" deck for reference. First off the kawi DFI (fuel injection) is very nice. The engine fires right up and sounds very smooth and much quieter than my old 23 hp kawi. At full throttle the machine just sounds mean and powerful. Clearly, the power is there and plenty of it. The larger hydro pumps allow for much more control on hills and the engine has no problem ascending them. The suspension seat which is only available on 29hp+ models is amazing, I have never experienced such a nice ride. Now the cut to sum it up....unbelievable. I know I can not speak for all, but the way my lawns came out was amazing to me. I even had to get some of my favorite customers and show them around the yard just so they could share this experience with me. They were thoroughly impressed. Only thing I havent used yet is that cupholder, gonna be a nice feature with the hot summer approaching. To sum it up. I love this mower, I would recommend it based on the few days I have had it. I think Scag has fixed many issues from the past and created a very nice mower. Cant wait to get back on it, its pouring here today. Have a great night everyone.
