I am starting a Lawn Maintenance business in the spring, and have decided I am going to go with a Scag zero turn. I am planning on buying new, but am open to any suggestions. I am leaning towards the Scag Cheetah with a 52" deck (not sure which engine yet). Since it will cost me around $10,500, I am wondering if I should instead go with the Freedom Z (52") until I get a solid client base and income, and can buy the Cheetah without financing. A buddy of mine told me I should also look at the Tiger Cat, which is priced in between the Freedom Z and Cheetah. I would like to know what you guys think (as you guys already went through the start up process) and I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks in advance!
