Yes you do see some stihl handhelds 2 blowers and a hedge trimmer and a chain saw. Im thinking about upgrading the blowers to back pack but don't know if it would be worth it.

In my opinion there is a huge difference in the 2 decks, I will put the velocity:clapping: deck up against in other deck. I would like to buy a new 48" with the velocity. The velocity deck mows everything wether its 3-4ft tall or wet grass, always leaving a great looking cut when im done.:clapping:

As for the gate lift, WOW what a back saver. That gate wieghs at least 100+ and I can pick it up with one finger, with ease.

I hope more of you will post pics of your SCAGS.

I have a Scag tiger cub and it is great except for the part where you can mow with it. But if the grass is a tiny bit wet it is a POS it will clog up every time. We have to have a draught for it to mow good. But it runs great and always starts but man does it suck when it comes to damp or wet grass. I would never buy a scag again in my life.

how well do you like your belt drive on the 36"

Edmonds Lawn Service
04-01-2009, 09:37 PM
Yes a Zero turn.


Very clean machine.

DRBLawnBuster
04-01-2009, 09:41 PM
I love it. It does a great job and has a very clean cut and stripes great. But the belt cant handle a sulky if you were going to put one on. I dont think a sulky is neccassry on a 36" since you are usually cutting a small area. Also if you are mowing in really wet grass the belts will slip, but it has to be really wet for that to happen. It is really a great small mower, mine is about 10 years old but is in great shape as you can see. Some times i look at it as i would rather replace a belt on a back-up / mower used not as much compared to a hydro pump.

SIWEL, Does that vacsystem work good any problems with it? My problem is i have to take my clippings and leaves and put them in the back of the truck. These are also a pricey investment too. I was told $2,000 for a vacsystem.

OrangeToys
04-02-2009, 11:24 AM
$2,000 is correct, I know in my area it would cost me $2,400.

JShe8918
04-02-2009, 08:49 PM
Not very much with the scag. Only occassionally mainly when i am bagging on a area that is kind of bare or it it is a large area. I use my walker more often. But it vacuums great too.

JShe8918
04-02-2009, 08:59 PM
just more convenient to use the walker so i don't have to worry about the bulkiness of the clamshell and tube. the tube likes to grab trees. HAHAHA

Are those all belt drive scag walkbehinds? Do you pull sulkys with any of them?

How many Crews do you run on a single day.

04-04-2009, 12:13 PM
The walkbehinds are all belt except for one of the 36 inchers there is a 32 3 36 and 2 48 there we have velkes for a few of them but for the most part dont use them often unless its a more open area. I dont really like the look they leave with either the single wheel or double, and all it does is make the guys go faster be more careless and thus quality suffers. As a few of you said scag is the way to go i belive we have thousands of hours on them and have never had a major problem, but they do get well taken care of

Mlc gmc03
04-04-2009, 12:24 PM
How many crews? it really depends on the day but normally 3-4
crew 1: 16ft enclosed 36in and 48 in walkbehind and 48in tiger cub
crew 2: 18ft open 36in and 48 in walkbehind and 61in dfi turf tiger
crew 3: 16ft enclosed 36in walkbehind and 52 in stander
crew 4: 14ft open 32in walkbehind and 52 in turf tiger
all crews also have one toro comercial 21 and all redmax gear

How hard is it to operate that pro v?

ProTouch Groundscapes
04-22-2009, 12:36 PM
i think the pro v is extremely easy to use. The best part about it is that you can feather the controls in any direction including reverse, so in this sense it operates very much like a rider compared to pistol grip units.

ive learned to operate it on hills really well to, but im a big guy and do weight lifting so i can muscle this thing around with one hand on the cross bar and the other operating the controls.

?? do you mean, "why did you GET a 48" walkbehind?" we already have a rider and needed a walkbehind. and on some of our properties its alot quicker to use the proV than our rider.
