    According to my shopping notes, the price on the 36" is right on the money. But, the Turf Tiger is a hell of a deal! My quote was over $9,000 on the same machine....

    I have no local Scag dealer. But, it sounds like I might ought to find another dealer and give Scag a second chance.

    Good prices....I say buy!!

    I have only used Scag equipment so I cant talk about other the other brands. I can say that I have never had any problems with my Scag equipment (including used) mowers that I have purchased.

    I use my 2002 Tiger Cub to cut stuff that a Bush hog should be cutting, and I have not had any problems. This thing is built like a tank!!


    P.S. Go Hydro on the WB if you can afford it.

    Exellent price. I just looked at a price list from my dealer from 2002. They have that mower listed at $8400.
