I have just joined the orange nation. I bought a Scag Tiger Cat 19 Kawi 48" yesterday..wooohooo. $6741 OTD with an extra set of blades. The dealer sold it as a demo, but he was the only person to actually use it, never loaned out. He cut his grass once a week since the spring, less than 30 hours. Looks brand new. I have sense cut my yard with it in between rain showers. The grass had two weeks worth of growth and the Scag went through it like butter at full speed, and cut my mowing time in half at least. I am very impressed. No standers left what so ever. Just got to get that turning without tearing up the grass thing down. I am looking forward to see the cut when I cut it at regular intervals, not with the two weeks of growth. It will look amazing. Thanks to all the advice I read or you gave.
