    First I want to say Kudo's to this site. I spent 3 hours last night and 1 today reading/learning. I came across it while researching the purchase I'm about to make.

    I need a small ZTR and have so far narrowed my choices to the Scag Tiger Cub and the Zubota ZG20. One large advantage to the Zubota is the 0% for 3 yrs.

    I'm very open minded and would love to hear other options in case there is another mower I've overlooked.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    I own 4 kubotas and they are great machines, and very easy to service Kubota service reps will bend over backwards to make sure any problems get resolved to your satisfaction

    Just bought a Tiger Cub after a month of debating, very nice machine, operates beautifully. Demo several but not the Kubota. My toss up was between the Scag and a Dixie. For the money the Scag won me over.
    Don't think you can go wrong with either one.

    I purchase a ZD21 Pro 60 last year, it is great, I have seen a ZG20 the other day, don't know much about it. Kubota has a good dealer network and parts system. In my area Scag's are kinda hit and miss. I think they are good machines. I think either would be OK

    I'm a SCAG man. Just picked up my new Wildcat Tuesday. Great machines. I would go with the Tiger Cub

    We have two Tiger Cub's one is a year old with 275 hours and other we picked up today. We have had zero problems, just regular maintenance. They are great mowers, and I would highly recommend them.
