    Here is a picture of my new mower I picked up today. Its a Scag Z-Cat 36" w/19 HP KAW. I'll let you know how it does. BTW, I went with the 36" deck because it fits on my trailer with my 36" walkbehind and weighs in about 300 lbs less than a 48". Both seem to fit fine on my 6x10 trailer with my push blower, backpack blower and a trash can.

    Nice purchase. How much did it cost?

    I still dont see much use for a small z in my company. A simple wb fits our needs and doesnt cost a lot. In any event, good luck with it.

    It was $5800 (+tax of course). I have had small WB which has worked out great but it gets tough in the South Carolina heat in the summer. It was a bit more than the Exmark Phazer ($5k) and the Gravely 34z ($5100) but seems to be a better built machine than the Phazer and I dont like the Gravely dealer here so didnt even look.

    You just think you would have no use for a small z,when you buy one you will kick your ass for not.

    That is a fine looking mower! Sure you will enjoy using it. No experience with Scags but have not heard but a few negative comments, but even more good comments.

    Reference your comment about the Gravely dealer: Some dealers just never learn do they? Here is a guy that just took himself out of the game by his dealings with a customer.

    I didn't know they made them that small, either.
    Guess that's what happens when a female 60" Z and a male 72" Z are left over the winter in the shed together, huh?

    Strange thing is, my two 48" wb's are always together, but I've never had any offspring come from this...
    One would think she'd bear us a 30" wb one year, but no...
