What year did the Scag velocity deck come out?

    Since my dealer showed me a new mower (Turf Tiger) today with a 31 hp briggs and they didn't offer the 31 in 06 or 07 it must be a left over 05. So I'm guessing it has the advantage instead of the velocity deck? Just the fact that he didn't tell me it was a left over makes me suspicious. So when did they switch to the velocity deck (what year?)

    That's what I'm thinking he was showing me an 05 and I looked under the deck and thought it was a velocity but now I'm thinking it was an 05 with the advantage. No wonder he was pushing it so hard. I thought I was getting a deal on a new mower with the Velocity when in fact I was looking at a mower that had been left over for two years (just a guess). Not knowing much about Scag I was easily fooled. I would have never imagined an 05 still on the sales floor. I would still be interested if it had the velocity but no doubt they did not come out till 06. That's what I have you guys for. I could have easily made a mistake.

    To me the velocity is better,now you can get a warranty on leftover mowers but if there is not much saved i always go with new.
