If nothing else I'd like to see some pricing data to see how it compares with the Hustler Fastrak.

I heard the Scag rep talking about the unit to a dealer. He said that it is designed to go after the market that Hustler has taken away from them in the area. Hustler has been kicking some major rear over here. It is also to get the homeowner to purchase some as well, notice the Briggs engines. I don't know how it would hold up for landscaper use. Time will tell.

It uses the IZT8000's like exmark, hustler and some others use.

It would appear to be a mower designed for home owner use. I notice it has a 3 year home owner warranty and only a 1 year commercial use warranty.

Would guess the pricing to be in the $4200-$6500 range from looking at some of the features of the mower.

Definitely a homeowner mower. I will ask my dealer next week when I am in there if he knows anything.

I think my dealer said they should be around $5000 and are made for homeowner use.

I'm just a homeowner who likes good reliable equipment. I learned long ago not to buy anyone's low end or entry level product. Look for something in the middle of their price/quality range for best value and dependability.

If I was a home owner I would buy that scag in a heat beat it looks very strong.

The Hustler Fastrack, their entry level mower, is of excellent quality for homeowner use.

LOL...89LB Clutch
Sorry for laughing...I thought John was kidding about the 89lb clutch. I've since read about the machine and see where it is somewhere close to 89lbs. I think it said 87lb.
Anyway after reading about it...I don't think it should be priced much over $3,000.00
