    well I have been thinking about going to scag route and was looking at the tiger cat 48" priced at $7000 plus tax. But I do miss having a smaller unit so I found a 05 z cat with 119 hrs. The guy sent me pictures and it looks brand new. He wants 3500 for it. Good buy or not? Also I do have a used toro z453 that I am not crazy about and the guy said he wanted to do a trade and give me the difference in cash.

    I owned a Z-Cat and sold it last year. They are tough as nails and are a great machine except in one area. If you mulch, expect to see some windrows. Scag offers a mulch plate for that deck but it's not a mulch kit and there is only 1 set of blades made for it. I'd offer $3000 and see what happens.
