I've always run Exmark Lazer 60's and Toro 500 series 60's. I love the way they cut when the grass was dry. I've had friends / competitors who've run Scag Turf Tiger 60's and they let me play on them. I like the Scags a lot. I've spoke to a Scag dealer and if I'm buying three 27hp Kohler Turf Tigers, he's willing to let me have them for $9,800.00 each. I think that's a pretty good deal. Though, I think I might want to throw a Cheetah in there in place of a Tiger. I plan on doing demo on the Cheetah... and I want to try a 35hp Briggs Tiger also. I'm thinking of making this switch to Scag because the idea of mowing with dew on the grass without clumping is very appealing. Plus, it seems like the hydro pumps on the Exmark and Toros start small drip leaks between 500 and 800 hrs. At about 1400 - 1700 hrs, there's a puddle sitting under the pumps on the concrete every morning when you're loading the trailers. I just spent $1,400.00 for two new hydro pumps on a series 500 Toro last fall. That machine had 1600 hours on it. So, my question is what are the known common issues with the Tigers and the Cheetahs? Most of my Toros / Exmarks had Kohler 23 & 27's and I've had good luck with them. How do the hydro pumps and wheel motors hold up on the Scags? What do you think about the 27hp Scag? Enough power or could use more? Btw, I stopped by an Exmark dealer Saturday and checked out the new gen x series Lazer 60. It's pretty impressive.
