    I'm starting my own lawn care and landscaping business and was wondering about pros and cons on the various brands of zero turn mowers. I'm leaning towards the Scag Tiger Cub right now.

    Make certain if there is a Walker dealer in your area you look at them.

    I bought the Tiger Cub last year and I'm very pleased with it. If I had to do it over again, I would have choosen the 52" with a 20 horse on it. The bigger deck makes it easier to trim around trees and bushes without tearing up the turf. They have made quite a few improvements since last year too. Lower center of gravity, controls up on your left side, instead of between your legs, etc. I think you'll be happy with the Scag, but you really need to demo a several different kinds. Some guys just think that because its the one they own then it must be the best. I say to each his own. Try a few different kinds and then decide. Thats what I did and I'm happy. :D

    Go out and demo, pick what you like and a dealer that will give you good service, and use that search!

    depends on your needs. I use a tiger cub on small residential,& cemeteries. 48" 19 ka.no problems in three yr.nice cut. nice foot print good size for tight areas. sometimes a little under powered. I use Dc's on large cuts. I will be buying A new small mower this summer will be 52" 23hp. Kaw.
    thinking of trying Exmark hear alot of good things
    about them.But the Scag has treated me well.

    I have several brands also. Take a look at the Walker for sure. There is a reason they are the number one selling outfront ZTR on the market.
