    Hi everyone,

    Im just getting started in the lawn care business and my friend offered me a scag tiger cub that is one year old. It has a 48 inch deck with a kawasaki engine. It has 50-60 hours tops. What would be an estimated current value of this mower? Thanks

    No more than $4500.00

    $4500 wouldbe a great price for the mower but is considerably under book value. I have a 2004 Scag Tiger Cub 48" 19 hp kaw with 600 hours. I looked up book value at my dealers shop (I will try and sell outright rather than trade), anyway mine booked between $4000 - $4200.

    I'd say if you can get it at $4500 that would be an excellent deal. I would also say if your friend has any horse sense he will realize he could probably get more for the machine than $4500. $5000 or better really wouldn't be such a stretch.

    These machines go for about 6000.00 new plus tax, so use your judgement. Granted there isn't a warranty but my cub has been very reliable,1250 hours. Matt
