    I bought a new Scag Cheetah 61" with the 36 vanguard this year. List MSRP was $10,599. I ended up getting the Scag before taxes for $9,400. So do your research and remember if they want your business they will work with you. Also don't be afraid to price around.

    The problem with price shopping on a scag is they space their dealers out so much that you eat up your savings with fuel costs.

    Also compare sales tax as well, a couple of % can make a difference

    I have also been looking to buy a 61" Cheetah. A company near Dallas had a closeout on a 61" Kawi for $8,999. Just be patient and willing to travel and you will find some decent deals.

    Having had both I wonder why some pay 10 or $12 g's for brand name.

    I saw a Scag Cheetah today with 61" velocity deck and Kawasaki 850fx.. dealer wanted $10,791. I thought it was kind of high.. and that was the national promotion price.. I'd swear I got a price a few months back for $9960 same vendor.
