alright guys right now i have a scag 48" hydro and I used to have a 48" exmark viking hydro...both great machines that I love. Now i'm looking at the tiger vs. the new lazer. here are the specs and prices... Turf tiger 61" 31hp EFI $12789. 2700 for the bagger Exmark 61" lazer Z 29HP kohler EFI $11699 2700 for the bagger The exmark has NO grease fittings....totally sealed everywhere. Scag has a driveshaft though.....3 year warranty on the scag's motor....i'm assuming 3 years on the exmarks too.... so what's YOUR opinion? I have a good relationship with 2 dealers for both brands within 20 minutes of me. thanks guys, good luck this season!
