    I have opportunity to get a 2008 tiger cub with hurricane mulch kit with only 75 hrs for $5300 . It has the 23 briggs vanguard and 52 in deck.Is this a good deal or an ok one? underpowered? Theres not a thing wrong with it hardly a scratch has been well taken care of.What do you think?

    See if you can get it for under 5k. Sounds like a good mower. I have a Cub with a 61" deck. The V+ deck cuts good anywhere. Not sure on the 23 VG engine. It's probably worth the 5k+ they want but it IS 3 going on 4years old. Are you buying from a dealer or private owner?

    private. He did't know i was coming a dealer gave me his number and he lives near me and i stopped at his house and it was very clean. Can tell he took very good care of it.Briggs not my first choice and would like more hp but i dont really need it just wanting it...more is almost always better you know.

    Dealer offered him 5000 without mulch kit. I would have gotten one seperately ($300) anyways plus its installed already.

    The 23 vanguard should be plenty on that deck. If it were a briggs els or pro series I might say no, but the vanguard is pretty stout. I have a 24 Kawi on my 52" and it does great.

    Only thing, you can get a brand new bad boy 23hp vanguard 50" czt for $5899 with a mulch kit full retail, I don't think the bobcat or gravely is much more than that, thats brand new with full warranty. Its working on 4 years old. I sold a 2008 Tiger Cat here for $3500 here last season, but it had 200 hours on it.

    I am fixin to get it back, it went to a homeowner that couldn't afford a new mower, but he just came in the other day and wants a new Outlaw, just pm me a message so I will remember, and I will give you first dibs on it...
    Oh, and on the badboy, I have sold well over 500 here in 4 cutting seasons, they are all you see on a trailer, they blow everyone away right now, the Outlaw is a sick mower for the price... its funny, any negative I have ever heard about one they fix, they are awesome. I am having a hard time trying to find another brand to sell, right now they all want me to be a dealer, and I would like to be a full line dealer for one other brand, just haven't found the one I like yet...
