    I have a Scag tiger cub 48" right now, its great for residential lawns. But i wanna get into commercial. My dream set up is a Ford F-350 Powerstroke diesel w/ 2 Sabre Tooth Tigers both 61", is it possible to do pure commercial w/ 2 61?'s. Your thoughts are appreciated. And dont tell me to do a search, i already tried.

    It would depend on what type of commercial properties you get. About 85% of my business is commercial and I run (1) 36"WB (3) 48"WB (1) 61"WB and (2) 61" Turf Tigers. My clients have apartments, restaurants, grocery stores, factories, warehouses and a print shop. I run all SCAG, I liked the Turf Tiger better than the Saber Tooth..but that's just my opinion. In my opinion and experience, if you limit yourself to one size and one style of machine, you limit the type of clients you can serve, and in doing so limit your business growth potential. :blob2:
