    Check out the hoppers more closely, they are huge in our area. I became a dealer for them this year because of all the good things ive heard about them.

    Yes. It was a 52". Same day I had a 61" cheetah. No comparison. I only used them on a yard each. I used a turf tiger with a 61 as well. Cut the same as the cheetah. They were demo units so who knows what blades looked like and under the deck.

    We have 3 dealers near by. The cheaper big dealer is 40 minutes or so away. My local dealer in town here is decent. Down time wait is awhile, but have loaners. The better one for parts is 30 mins away. Is about 12-15% higher on mowers. I had one for a week and liked it. I didn't care for the spacer system on the deck for height of cut. They have come along way in the last few years. Most brands have improved a lot. One brand in my opinion is failing in quality all the way around. Not going to say to prevent a war.

    I'm sure most know. They just may not admit it.

    How would you compare grass accumulation under the deck between the 2 decks?

    the velocity stays clean,we've had rain the last 2 days and it keeps going with no problems, the turbo force accumulated more but it cut better in dry thin conditions where i am, i'm thinking about going back with the toro but you cant go wrong with the turf tiger

    sounds like operators error if your scalping more unless your cutting at 2" then i could understand. the cheetah holds 15 gallons of gas, problem solved.

    I run a 61" cheetah with a 34hp kohler and have very little grass build up with the velocity plus deck setup which is the newest. scag is simply the best, its not only their slogan, its the truth....
