    Is that the new Scag homeowner mower? I have a Scag Turf Tiger and Tiger Cub and they are both great machines.

    It looks real good I saw one at my scag dealer today.
    The one I saw was a 48" with a 27 hp BSES motor. I may be wrong on the deck size. Didn't look at it long.

    I know this is kind of old but if anyone is interested the pics are on scags website now, www.scag.com. I like the fact that these commercial ztr companies are trying to hit the residential customers but I don't think it really helps them or us. It doesnt help the companies because these aren't built like a commercial grade machine. I realize they aren't trying to make it one but now when these machines start breaking down sooner it makes there product look bad when they make great commercial products. I am not just talking about Scag but all the big companies Exmark, Grasshopper, Dixie Chopper, etc. It also hurts us because now customers start finding out the price of a "cheaper mower" and want to know why we charge that much. They don't realize we bought the true ztr and not a "cheaper mower." Plus they dont realize that we dont drive our ztrs to the site we have to pull them on a trailer. They forget the others costs and don't find out the kind of money we payed for our commercial machines. Just my .02.

    exactly..but this is becoming the main target of the top commercial companies. in the end, it will hurt the companies, as well as the everyday LCO..so i guess we'll have to see:hammerhead:
