We have one of those....almost. it is a Scag Cougar, and the deck is a 52. It will bag or side discharge, but out the left side of the deck. Very heavy machine with a liquid cooled 27 Kawi under the hood. It has had it's share of issues, but overall the guys seem to like it. Used primarily at a cemetery. I don't think they make them anymore, but not sure.

Its almost exactly the same as the walker. I wonder why they discontinued it..

They did not sell enough just like the sabre tooth. It was a great mower I was so close to buying one 2 years ago but I saved cash and bought the tiger cub

Had one, its a turf runner. what a pile of junk. got rid of it within 2 months all it did was clog. it was a 20 hp.It would bog down all the time . dealer brought a rep from scag out to my job and it kept clogging. they tried a bunch of things and nothing would stop the cloggin> they didnt give me a full refund took away 700.00 because they said it was used now. I never bought a scag again.

We have one that we brought from Trugreen after they did 1 year test and we have had it for 7 years. It does just fine on southern grasses and the bagging was almost as good as my Walker. I think Scag was quick to realize that there just wasn't a big enough market and Walker had a good hold on it. I think Exmark will find the same with their lookalike bagger.....scag sales they are about to give it up.
