Picked up a scag turf runner with a 22 kohler with 162 hrs on the working hr meter got it started but need to clean carb better. looks good! If you tell me what you think it is worth then I well tell you what we bought it for. I think we got a steel. It is a 1996 turf runner. Hydro drive. :D :p

Well, lets see...that puts the machine at 6 years old. So yes, it had low hours, but it had sat around alot too. How big of a deck is on it? I am going to guess a 52". I would say you probably spent about $2,100 to $2,500. But then again, a picture is worth a thousand words.

I put about zero credibility in hour meters as a way to tell how many hours are on a machine. They are just too easy to disconnect. I would have to actually see the machine personally before giving a price.

Like Richard said.. doubtful that those are actual hours. Or maybe they are... because the thing turned over 9999 :D

My guess.. $1641.87 ;)

ok ok you all need to see it or the hr meter is been not hoked up all the time. It has worked from day one got it from a dealer that got it for his dad and when dad pasted away did not want to let go but he is now closeing the doors and it must go. Was told get it out of the lot and you can have it for 300 cash. So we put air in the wheels and got the tow chain and hoked it up to our new scag cub and pulled it up on the trailer. It is a 48" and I just hope I did not spend to much on it. :rolleyes: Thanks for playen let you all know what the cut is like when I get more time.:p

Sounds like a Walker clone, at $ 300 It was a steal if in good

shape and it runs. Used Walkers of that age $ 4k.

lots of Luck Ed.

I saw a Woods ZTR in the paper yesterday. The ad said to go to the website for photos.
This was a real decent looking machine for $1600.00

Website says already sold. Darn!!! Always too late.


If you want the link i'll post it so you can see for yourself, and give opinions.

But... what is a Scag Turf Runner? I assume they have dropped that model as I dont' recall seeing it on their website or catalogs lately? Is it like the new Cougar, since edward hedrick said it must be a Walker clone???

BushHogBoy-The Scag Turf Runner is a Walker knock-off. Scag renamed it...it's now known as the Cougar. Both are Walker knock-offs and I've HEARD that they aren't proven performers, but hey, for $300, that IS a steal.

so used my scag all fall did a great job and just did not want to have that tank around so traded it for a JD gator 4x2. we used the gator for a tie wall job this week and love it the things you can do with little money some times goes along way.:p
