    Has anybody seen or demoed these. The lool like the real deal for 36" riders. Standard ROPS. Top speed of 7.5 mph, commercial grade warranty. Hmmm, might have to take one for a spin, what do you guys think?

    I got to give one a good going over at the GIE in North Carolina back in Nov.It seems to be built as strong as the bigger mowers, only thing I didnt like was the price, seems to me it was with in $500 of the tiger cub which had a 48'' deck. If you could use a 48'' deck I think the tiger cub is by far the better deal

    At the time, I think it was 5499 and the tiger cub could be purchased for 5999, but the mowers were new and not out offically at that time. In my opinion 4500-4999 would be a good price

    I dont understand the 36 rider. Alot of gates are 36, but with the gate door, the opening is like 35 or so. The 34 like encore and gravely have makes more sence to me. Thats what i am getting. It will get every back yard that I have, where a 36 wouldnt fit in about 20 of them.

    I really don't have too many with gates, but they are big enough to justify a 36WB but small enough not to use the 52" super Z. I think if I were to drop $4500 for a good hydro, the extra grand to sit isn't all that bad.
