    I have just about made up my mind about purchasing this new Scag mower it's a Scag Turf Tiger 52' Advantage cutting deck with a 27hp kohler. I chose this mower over the Exmark, and I'd like to hear from other Scag owners to see if I made the right decision. I think I have. I put down a deposit and I pick it up on Monday. It comes with a strpier kit, Clam shell dump from the seat, trailer hitch, and the hurricane mulching system. This is my first Scag and I hope it wont be my last.

    if only going with the 52 deck, why not the wildcat?, I heard the clamshell is so so. I heard the 3 bags were the way to go. I am only saying this because i was ready to pull the trigger on the wildcat. Scags are very stout.

    ya if your not cutting huge properties where the machince is running all day why not the wildcat, i dont see where the watercooled would be that neccesary. as far as the bagger goes we have the 3 bagger system on a turf tiger and i like that better than the clamshell as far as getting the debris into a can or the back of the truck

    You can't get a water cooled in a 52 inch deck,he has got the bigger pumps,shaft driven,and the better seat than the wildcat not much more money than the cat the resale will be there.
