    Just went and picked up my new machine today and am considering a mulch kit. This is going to be my residential/small commercial account machine. I've added expanded metal sides and a wood floor to my 5'x8' trailer. Tomorrow im adding a blower rack and trimmer rack, cooler holder to it as well. This way ill have 2 mowing rigs. I'll send the 16' trailer and field mower with a hired hand to go do larger accounts while I take the 5'x8' and Tiger Cub to go knock out the smaller ones, maybe even expand into another nearby town.

    Congrats on the purchase. Nice looking machine. We run all scags and love them. We use mulching blades on our Turf Tiger, but with the blade speed of the scags any blades will cut up the grass. I think you will be really happy with your purchase. We demoed a Dixie Chopper and a Ferris this winter and we liked our Scags a lot better (not that everyone else agrees) but that was our oppinion.

    The Scags with the Hurricane mulch kit installed does a very good job. If you like to mulch alot I would recomend this. If you side discharge most of the time and just mulch a little I would recomend just the discharge cover. I will tell you there is alot of differance between the mulch kit and just the discharge cover.

    nice mower. thinking about what you said- 2 trucks on the road = 2x gas $ and hired hands work much better when you are with them. i would do the big stuff as a team and only split if needed. when you do the small yards he can trim. jmo. but you know your business better then me.
