    Get the cheetah. It has bigger pumps and a transaxle system. The ride is better. The only problem you will have with the Cheetah is going too fast for a good cut. You are right, the money is not that much more.

    The cheetah uses more power up with the new hydro system. If you get one make sure it's a bigger size motor if you need it for tough cuts.

    OK guys, thanks for the advice on this. I decided on a 2013 Turf Tiger. 61" with 27hp Kawi. I skipped the bagger. Here's a pic from the other day when I picked it up. the 2013 has some neat little upgrades over the 2012. nothing huge, just little odds and ends. I'll post more pics this spring. Maybe I'll take a few more after I unload it from the trailer.

    What's causing the name problem; is in reality you have been wanting a Turf Tiger...Wishful thinking has ways of playing tricks on the mind...LOL
