    We have two both have 19 hp kawasaki's and are 48in decks. One is a 2003 it has 372 hrs with no problems except we had to replace the belts once and the parking brake lever locked up ( our fault we didnt grease it, you must take off the wheels to access it). The other is a 2004 it has 120hrs, all we have done it routine maintenance (still on factor belts). I would highly recommend the Tiger Cub, which model are you looking at? If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them.

    I have a 2004 with 150 hours. I think it's a great machine and have had no problems...but like with anything, you have to do the maintenance. Whatever you get, keep the spindles well-lubed and follow all (or exceed) all maintenance schedules.

    Ditto to the above posts,

    Mine is a 20hp Kohler, 48" cut and I'm very pleased with it.

    Is this opinion or fact?

    I have a 23Kaw Scag Cub 52" that I feel is the Cadaliac of mowers but that's just my opinion.

    Purchased a Tiger Cub 52" with the Honda 24hp last month.

    150hrs and going strong.

    Great stripes and it climbs hills!

    Would definitely recommend one!
