    local dealers are really discounting these mowers compared to other SCAG models. I can get a Wildcat 52" deck with a 25 KAW for the same price as a Tiger Cub with a 52" deck and 23 KAW. Something doesn't smell right that they are selling a higher level mower with a oil cooler and better seat for the same price as a lower model.

    The Wildcat and the Tiger cub are basically the same machine. The Wildcat has a much nicer seat and I don't think much else over the tiger Cub.

    Also the Tigercubs the dealer has may be newer than the wildcat they have. Dealers don't like mowers sitting in the showroom collecting dust, so they will drop prices to move a unit.

    Does the wildcat your looking at have the new velocity deck?

    Ask the dealer why the lower price. I am curious now what his answer will be
