    I will be in the market for a 52" zero turn around maybe September depending on how good income increases. I am familiar with gravely, so far I'm really liking what I've got from them but.. I need to cover more ground For those bigger property's. The 34 is awesome for small property's with gates. Not for wide open bigger areas. I have a really good relationship with my gravely dealer that also carries Scag. I've looked at the Tiger cat II. It looks nice, I haven't tested either one of them out yet.

    Help is well appreciated.

    Im considering getting a used unit with around 100 to 260hrs on it.
    But if I don't find a used one then I'll just get a new unit. Budget is around 8,500 or less. Hoping for less but worse come to worse I'll just get the new one like in October.

    I have a Tiger Cat II and have no regrets. I like it.

    You may want to consider just going to a 60" deck.
    Also, with the Tiger Cat, you will get the superior deck. If you go 200 or 400 series Gravely, you get a large frame machine as compared to a compact frame TC. But the 100 series Gravely is also small frame. To me, no question, go TC.

    I just bought the TCII at the beginning of this season. Has the 61" deck, 26hp Kawi. Plenty of power.
    I would not spend $8,500 on a used one, when you can get a new one for around $8,800, with a full warranty. (Scag's warranty is only good for the original owner)
    Love the TCII and I came from a Cheetah. No regrets

    I didn't mean I was going to buy a used mower for 8,500!:laugh:. If I had to spend that much money for one it would definitely be New.

    For the stuff I do I don't really have the need for a 60" but not to say I won't get one. My only concern with that is will I still have enough space to be able to walk in there? I have a 7x16 enclosed trailer.
