Hey everyone, I recently posted question about ZTR's for residential and was asking about Scag and Exmark. Well I have narrowed it down to a Scag Tiger Cat. My question now is pricing and what your opinions are about what I have received from two dealers... All opinions are welcome. Dealer one - 2010 Tiger Cat 48" with a Briggs ELS 26HP - $6845.00 Dealer two - 2010 Tiger Cat 52" with a Kohler 27HP - $8550.00 My questions are.... Is the 52/27 worth the difference in price? Is the price accurate? Again it is for residential with 1.5 acres mowable with the intention of buying more property with a new home in the next few years... something like 3 acres mowable. Would I even notice a difference (between HP and the 4" cut difference)figuring I would run it once a week? Also I get a flavor that Kohler's are better... I have had one on my Craftsman tractor for 10 years and it has been flawless... so i would lean towards it. I have heard some say the Briggs have issues. Funny thing is, Dealer two with the Kohler told me he sells a ton of Briggs ELS and has not seen any come back for service and could not say anything bad about it. He just didn't have one on his lots when I was there. What are your opinions on them? I could order anything I want from either Dealer but these are the two most comparable they have on their lots. Help! What's the better deal??? Also in the future I would be adding a bagger to it... so I know horse power is a concern with bagging... Thanks all and I look forward to your thoughts!
