If you are going to include commercials with that mower, you might want to reconsider and look at a Scag Wildcat.Looking at purchasing a new tiger cub with 52in deck and 23hp briggs vangaurd. Anyone have this set up? What do you think of this machine? I will do mostly residential with it but have a few big commercials too. Is the powerful enough?
What makes the Wildcat that much better than the Tiger? Are the wheel motors and hydro pumps larger? Most of the frame and decks looks almost the same. Maybe some more engine options?If you are going to include commercials with that mower, you might want to reconsider and look at a Scag Wildcat.
I'm right there with ya. Lovin my TC.My 61" TC w/ 25 Kohler is doing fine. Then again, I side discharge everything. $1000 more would have gotten me the Wildcat w/ 27 Kohler or watercooled Kaw. Differences between the Wildcat and 52" - 61" Cub are adjustable control levers, hydro cooler, and no-flat front tires. For my application, the extra expense wasn't justified.
Lovin the Cub
Cub and Wildcat share the same pump and motor setup. The frame is the same.What makes the Wildcat that much better than the Tiger? Are the wheel motors and hydro pumps larger? Most of the frame and decks looks almost the same. Maybe some more engine options?
Wow did not know Kohler put a 25hp Kohler in the Tiger Cub & 48" deck, I could only get the 20HP Kohler when I was using Scags.To bad your not in this area, my dealer has a Tiger Cub, brand new, 0 hours, 48" deck and I believe a 25 Kohler for 6300$ out the door. He needs to move it before the fall and is willing to let it go for just about any price.
It's buy no accident either, Scag is not the only Dealer guilty of this practice Went through it with my Walker purchase had to order the 26EFI or diesel plus the extra "destination" charges that are tacked. One reason I really have come around on the Bad Boy's the Dealers have the Higher HP models in stock, and priced to sell. I think Scag tells the Dealers what models and the engine& HP their getting to sell:laugh: uI understand that. However, you could get a Wildcat with the big hp.
