i just purchased a 2002 Turf Tiger w/ LC 27 Kawi to add to the fleet. i once again demoed everything under the sun before making my decision. the most impressive mower of the bunch that i demoed was the Super Z. i really, really, liked this mower and the way it cut was terrific but in the end the dealer had a whole lot to do with my decision. this is the 2nd Turf Tiger i have purchased from this dealer and the 4th Scag mower overall so needless to say, i got a pretty good deal. the Super Z was still a good deal cheaper but the closest dealer (that i actually trust and like) is about 35 minutes away. about the only thing i liked more on the Super than on my Tiger was the ground speed. every other category they were about even. with the new changes made to the 2002 Tigers, the mower has improved greatly. you sit 4" lower now, its 6"+ longer, has bigger front casters, stronger frame, etc, yada, yada, yada. im not trying to sell the Tiger to anyone on here but its a totally different machine than my 2000 TT. i had the demo for 5 days, put 26 hours on it and loved every minute of it. if the Super Z dealers get a little closer to home and can actually work on equipment properly, i may have to sell off the TT's and go Super Z. keep in mind this is pure opinion...no need to flame. thank you.
