    Hi i had a problem with my left wheel motor on my dixie and was wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem or even different problems with scags, cause i need to know before i buy one. So if i did get one should i get a wildcat or a turf tiger mind you that i will be doing school systems with a lot of hills and open areas. thank you

    We have 3 Turf Tiger and they do good on hills. We had two Tiger Cub which are on the same frame as the Wildcats and they did awful on hills. One of the Turf Tigers we had to replace one of the wheel motors this year but during the winter we use the bagging system on hills and have a little wonder blower mounted on the front. It puts a lot of wear on the wheel motors with all the additional weight and using it on hills so it is going to wear out faster. We haven't had any problems with the other two but there aren't carrying the bagger and the blower. Overall they are a great mowers.
