    yep, its a 48" cut scag belt drive w/ advantage deck. Since i got this wildcat, and traded in the dixie chopper, i really dont need my wb anymore, becuase the wc can handle the hills i have with my accounts. So im going to sell it on ebay maybe, or put an add in the paper , first $1,500 takes it(2003) with grass catcher. I have to call the dealer on monday, because i think somehow they got the wrong back tires on the wc. I looked in the catalog and it says they should be 24-12-12, and i have 23-9.5-12 which is what is on the cub according to what i can see in the catalog.
    I couldnt beleive the difference in the ride between the scag and dixie chopper. My ars dont hurt as bad with the wc. You can just tell, it is one solid built machine.

    Nice stripes. Looks like you're in a drought there as well.

    Those are the right tires on the machine. The bigger tires are for 61" deck. You can't put those big tires on 52", it will extend out past deck on each side. As for selling walk behind, do you have another mower if one machine breaks down. Also, you can't get the ZTr everywhere a walkbehind can. For 1,500 I would just keep it for spare or hard to reach areas you may get in future IMO. But if you have another spare then sell it.

    What is your Wildcat model? 52"? and what engine? I am shopping for a Z also and would like to know you really cut that slope with your wild cat?
    That is pretty decent slope and a good test for a Z to do that hill. Also, is your wild cat is shaft driven or belt driven?
    How much did you pay for out the door, if you don't mind sharing?
    PS: sell that belt walk, and get another wild cat!
