    Just curious what you like and don't like. I'm looking at a 2012 with a bagging system.

    which model exactly? I have a 2011 61" with the 27HP Kohler. I also have the 3-bag bagger for it. The mower has enough power to turn the bagger, even when wet. The tube on the bagger was too long, so I had to cut it down (it sagged and wet grass would get stuck). I don't care of the mounting of the blower unit, it's heavy as **** and not as easy to un-tension the belt as another brand, like an Exmark.

    The mower itself I've had no problems with. The only thing I wish the mower had was a hydro cooler. If you are doing lots of hills, the hydro fluid gets real hot and performance suffers a little. I get good fuel usage also, 10 gallons would be nice instead of the 8 though.

    The Scag Tiger Cat is a great mower. I've got 2 with 52" and Kohler engines. The Velocity decks leave a beautiful cut. I don't bag, but they do offer 2 different types of bagging systems. I use the Hurricane mulching kits on mine.
    I've owned a lot of Scags and they have never let me down.
