    Guys got a call from a dealer who just got a trade in on a scag tiger cub 24 Honda 52 inch cut with 200 hours I believe the deck is the advantage. or a Cub cadet Tank with a 23 kawi 48 inch cut 100 hours either for $5200... Any feedback will be appreciated......

    I would get the Scag hands down. Great reputation also with the Honda engine. I think the 52" and the Honda would be an excellent combination. "Simply the Best"

    The local Hustler dealer pushes that 24hp Honda in their Super Zs and that's all they push as far as engine options go. It's a great engine and the Tiger Cub is built on a superbly designed chassis. They use the exact same chassis on Wildcat. I think they even used it on the Z Cat before it went away. It's a design that has been around for years and is more than proven.

    Double check that the Scag doesn't have the Velocity Plus. Either deck is a good choice though.

    That was my next question...how good is the older deck.. I think it is called the advantage ? I know it is not the velocity because it is a 2006 model with only 200 hours!
