Faraway Farms, Inc.,
|"We purchased our first Scag Tiger Cub
for the 2000 mowing season, and it is still going strong. Plus,
we've added three more Scag's since. Yes, I trust their dependability.
Our four Scag mowers are used daily, give us a consistant cut,
and are dependable throughout the season."
Fleet Manager of Huppe Moore Landscape
|"Last year we tested all the mowers
out there and we found the Tiger Cub to be better built, a better
mulcher and easier to work with. We liked them so much, we have
purchased 8 Tiger Cubs in two years. After the success we have
had with our Tiger Cubs, we are switching all of our "competing
brand" Walk Behinds to Scag 36" Hydros. Our crews love the Scag
Pro-Cut Maintenance & Design, Inc.,
|"After adding the Tiger Cub to our fleet
a year ago, we did not hesitate adding two more this year. The
Tiger Cub is a universal mower for commercial and residential properties

increase in production, with the Scag bagging units, tall grass
just isn't as intimidating anymore."
President of Kern Landscaping,
|"The Tiger Cub far surpasses any prior
mowing equipment I have used in the past. I have tried many competitors,
but none compare. The bagging system is superior, the amount of
time saved is invaluable, and the quality of cut is excellent.
From now on, any equipment being replaced will be with a Tiger
