    Hi! This is my first thread. I retired this past March from 29 years of law enforcement and spent this summer mowing for someone else. It turns out he is selling the business and I think I'm going to by the accounts. I have run a couple different zero turns and I plan to buy a new one this spring. Can anyone give me any pros or cons on the Scag Turf Tiger. I plan on using a 60-61 in cut and want a mowing with a low center of gravity. Most of my jobs will range from 3/4 to 4 acres. I will also have at least one church and grave yard. Thanks for you time and anticipated comments.

    Welcome Wally -
    I don't have any experience with the Turf Tiger, but generally ZTR's have a fairly high center of gravity. They all require caution and close attention on hills. When the going gets steep I use a walk behind or a string trimmer. Having lost control on a hill of my ZTR and traveled down a hill faster than the mower can go on its own, I don't take any chances anymore. I Hope this helps.
