  1. Just got a tiger cub and we just had the bagger installed today 1502$ instal included .

    I was wondering what anyone else who bought this bagger paid for it.

    TELL ME MORE ABOUT YOUR NEW SCAG TIGER CUB. WHAT ENGINE? SIZE DECK? IS THIS YOUR FIRST SCAG ZTR? HOW DOES THE BAGGING SYSTEM WORK? I PURCHASED A 2003 SCAG TIGER CUB ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO AND LOVE IT. 48' ADVANTAGE DECK WITH 19 HP KAW. SO FAR 15 HRS. ON IT. I'AM INTERESTED IN THE BADDING SYSTEM, WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT IT.

    odin00- As you may remember I have a 2002 Scag Tiger Cub with 52" deck and 23HP Kawi. I called two places to check on a price and both places said $1500.00

    I think that must be the norm. Let me know how good it works, and if you end up using it all that often?

    I Also have a 2003 scag 52" deck 23 hp Kaw. With a bagger. Have not used the bagger yet but will this week.
     
  6. firefighter and jay if you get the bagger

    Make sure you put the ajustasble baffle under the advantage deck up on the highest notch or you will get a ton of blowout.

    Also take that turbo baffle off the discharge side.

    We mowed up wet maple leaves and the vac houseing shredded them to nothin.

    I have been pricing the bagger system around here in SE Michigan and they are going for around $1500.

    I too have been looking to purchase the bagger, however, I have been mulching with my Cub and have had no need to bag. In places where the leaves are 5 -6 inches high, I take my blower and spread them out some to help with mulching. Have not had a problem yet and this process seems to work real well for me.
