    I have a 1998 61 scag ztr with 16hp Vangard. I use gattor blades and sulky with it, the 16hp has been adequate, only in the spring with rapid growth has it need more hp.

    What type of price are they offering for this new unit, sounds great. Is it 61 or 60 inch? Is fixed or floating deck?

    I have a turf tiger with a 25 kohler/61" cut and it is bad to the bone,just put the master mulch kit on it and it will grind leaves to nothing,leave a superior cut as long as you operate it correctly.

    cos, You won't beleive how I found this 61. I bought it from and old lady(about 80 plus yrs) see only used it for half a season and then hired a company to do her 2 acres. See had all the options on it, execpt a larger engine.

    We use the 16hp Vanguard on all are 52" Scags, no major problems yet. I am thinking of putting 20hp to 23hp Kaw on the 61 Scag someday. Still is a great mower!
