Last week I posted about getting the wildcat 52 or the 61, took in all your advice but ended up getting the Tiger Cub 61 with 25 Kohler. Main reason was I saved 800ish and I wont be putting the hours on mine that you guys do. So for the options the WC had over the TC, for what I am doing, I can use that 800 somewhere else. Now for the fun stuff. Knocked out my 2 acres with it today and once I get use to it, looks like ½ the time. I did spend some time playing around cutting a few horizontal stripes just to see if I could pull it off. Not bad for a rookie, they are straight at least. Only made a few donut holes when turning, ill get it right the more seat time I get. The big thing was I didnt run it into my pond. You guys didnt lie when you said these things will walk through some grass.
