    Alright guys these are what it is down to. Scag Tiger Cub 19 hp kawi 48 or the Exmark z hp 19 kawi 46 inch triton.. The tiger is around 7100 and the exmark around 6700 the scag financing is o % for 36 and the exmark is 3.9 so in real money they are going to be right around the same money ..... Any help will be appreciated.. Thanks

    I think it depends if you mulch or not. Imo, the Exmark is a better mulching mower than the Scag. That being said, the Scag is bullet proof and built like a tank. The Exmark is a close second. Just my .02

    I'm not sure that is such a good price on the Scag. I just purchased the 48 inch Tiger Cub with the 19 Kawi for $5995.00. I know prices vary by region, however we are fairly close.

    Chris do you know if you can still get it for this price?? Is this out the door? It may be worth me driving down and getting one for that price. Would you recommend this mower over the exmark?

    Are you cutting very small lot's? I would have to demo there in Alabama before I could recommend one. Both great machines, a bit smaller than I'm used to.
