    Just curious why and when Scag stopped making the Sabre Tooth Tiger? I saw an old video of one and its really seems like the ultimate industrial acre taker type ZTR that really didnt have any competition from anything thats currently out there? I was Scag would maybe update and release the Sabre Tooth again.
    How many of you guys on here own or owned one and what did you think of it?

    Actually, the current Turf Tiger is the same mower. The Sabre Tooth Tiger had the A(advantage)deck and the current machine has the Velocity deck.This is a much better deck and I think it's the best on the market. Scag offered different engine choices then, but the Turf Tiger has several available. Go look at one if you have a dealer nearby, it's an impressive machine.

    Basically the same as a turf tiger frame wise. Adds larger pump/wheel motors, larger engines (back in the day). You are not missing much over a tt.
