Hmmmm - Maybe I need to get my eyes checked, but looks like a barefoot woman with no eye or ear protection with bare feet on something out of junkyard wars. Is she looks topless too? Kinda looks like it.

I don't want to burst your bubble but the motor on that 36" scag says right on top that it is a 14hp. They don't make a single cylinder 18hp.

How do you like that Tiger cub? looking at buying one soon, How much did it cost? I was thinking of getting the 48" but I like the idea of having a bigger deck,

Yeah, its only 14 hp. I took a gold marker and changed the 4 to a 8....funny thing, it has a LOT more torque than the old 12.5 kaw it replaced. :rolleyes: If anyone is interested in a good deal on some of these rebadged engines, contact me.

I looked at the 48" also, but with the 36" Scag WB, the blades are the same as the 52". I don't need anything larger than a 52" for my properties, so it was a no brainer. Sticker price was $7099. I have put close to 3 hrs on it already, and the extra 4" width is really nice for trimming.

Good Luck!

CTservices - Congratulations on the new mower, why walk when you can ride and get a great cut to boot...
Just upgraded my stuff from a 1999 WB and 2000 Z to a new Lazer HP, I cant believe all the improvements that have taken place in three years.

Sorry Flex,
I've also never heard of an 18 single cylinder. I was looking at it on a computer that had a very small moniter and it looked like it said 14hp:blush:
Again Sooo Sorry.
