Hi all, New member here. I'm not in business but I'm a homeowner with about 5 or 6 acres total to mow. I also mow up at my parents because my dad has passed away. There's a rather steep hill up there that I mow across because going up it leaves me underpowered. My dad's machine (which we still use, but mostly on the flat at my house) is a Land Pride AccuZ 60" with a (I think) 23HP Kawi in it. Our's is a Scag Turf Tiger with the 25HP Kholer in it and the 61" Advantage deck. We bought it used and it's served us well but I'd like to upgrade to a bigger, air cooled engine. I got a price today on a new Turf Tiger with the 35HP Vanguard in it, 61" Velocity Deck that was $10,100 if we don't finance + 6% sales tax. Since the price is way better than I thought, I really am considering doing it... which brings me to my question. Before I post our current Scag, I wanted to make sure I had the right year. The serial number is 6711449 which I think makes it a 2001 (which is what we were told when we bought it) but can anyone confirm for me or tell me where I can go to confirm? I don't see anything on Scag's site. Also - for the price of $10,100... is that good? There's some things I'd like to see different on the Scag (for example, I like the cup holder set up on my dad's Land Pride - my husband laughs at this, and I like the parking brake being integrated into the steering arms) but it's all pretty minor. We tend to get a lot of thick grass because it was all farm fields at one point and my Scag hasn't disappointed. thanks!
