    Looking at purchasing a 2002 scag tiger cub 48" 26hp kaw 530 hrs. Any thoughts on price or pros or cons? Is there such a model with a 26 hp kaw? The guy said he was told that it had a 26 but there were no stickers on the motor. He is going to send model and ser. no. to me. Thanks tracy:dancing:

    a 2002 model with a 26hp Kawasaki mated to a 48" deck? I doubt it. Not unless they put that engine on there. Are there any stickers that show it to be a Kawasaki engine? Right now, the biggest engine you can get on a 48" machine is the 23hp Kohler. They had the Vanguard before that, but if anything, the older machines would have less, not more HP.

    What is the asking price? A new Cub 19hp Kawasaki/48" sells for $6995 (at least around here), so keep that in mind when comparing new to used.
