I remember in a post not too long back someone talked about scag making a ztr that would be under a 36" , maybe it was a 34". I cant find the link, so I was wondering if anyone has any news on this small ztr??

anyone have any links or photos?

It's called a Z Cat. 36" and 42" cuts. The 36" will go through a 36" gate. Later

would you pick the scag over the gravely 34" if you were going to get a small ztr?

I don't have any experience with Gravely, but I love my Scag.

I'd like to see more specs on this 36".
Its looks more comparable to the Hustler M.Fastrak 36-42" than the Gravely 34z in regards to heigth.
Probably uses the same size tires.

If it has a 36" cut, it will not go through a 36" gate. I am a Gravely dealer. The Gravely 34Z will go through a 36" gate. We have sold a lot of those this last year, and the commercial guys love them for getting into gated backyards.
Just be aware, that none of the little, narrow, 36" - 34" ZTR's will work very well on hilly properties. They are strictly a flat ground machine.

Quality Cuts PLS

Southern Yankee, I made a post about it in the thread "Gravely 34Z or Hustler Fastrack Mini Z ??". You can also ask Gautreaux - he is a Scag dealer.

I have the 36 Hustler and it has worked on hills for me. Its not as tall and cumbersome as the gravely 34z.
& FYI the 36 HMF is 34.25 cut, the deck is 35.9" with the chute up and therefore can go thru a 36" gate. If you take the chute off its even less. I made a quick release for the chute for tight fits. Great little machine.

I THINK THAT A 36 RIDER IS FOR A RICH HOME OWNER SAVE YOUR SELF 6000 AND SEND A MAN W/ A WALKBEHIND 36

are you asking if you can work for me? :D

I wont go mow it with my 36" if you will go mow it for me for $10 a hour with your w/b.

As I said, one of these machines with a full 36" cut will not go through a 36" gate. I was not talking about a machine with a 34.25" cut. :)

that why I was wanting to see the specs on the new Scagg 36" because the Hustler Mini F. 36" is considered a 36" but in reality its only the deck width.

I guess your just trying to promote that heavy overweight 34 gravely again.
j/k :)

One thing I have found out though, if you have a mower thats just an inch or two from getting into a gate, you can usually modify the gate or posts to make it fit.

I seen one the other day at my dealers open house and was impressed with the build, but yikes on the cost. The dealer said that it would cost around $6000.00 but they were letting you test it and there was a Gravely 34Z and a Encore and the Gravely was in the middle. Scag was well balanced and did not spin tires like many others. I have seen many hustlers and I was not impressed with the small hustler I seen because it looked like it was commercial, but had cheap pumps and wheel motors. I am not saying this is the only hustler out there that is small, but it would be junk by the end of the first year around here. I hope to see it at the Ohio Power show.

$6k for a 36-42"?? Ridiculous! I could buy 2 small Hustlers for that. The market is ready for smaller z's but not at that price. I would rather buy a full size z (used) and spend some $ to enlarge gates.
The smaller z should be equally priced with a hydro w/b, imo.

I just called a Scagg dealer and got some info on the Z Cat.

The 36" will be a full commercial unit with dual pumps and wheel motors.

The MSRP is something like $6400 but my price he said would be $5799.

The 36" will come with a 19hp Kaw.

Should be available later this month.

I still think thats too much for a 3 foot cut.

I am NOT trying to promote the Gravely. I am just stating a FACT, that one of these little ZTR's with a true 36" cut, can not fit through a 36" gate. If the guy wants a mower that will go through a 36" gate, which most of the time are less than 36", then he needs to look elsewhere. Wheather it be at a Gravely, Hustler, or Encore.

At the GIE in North Carolina in Nov. I asked the price of the small scag and it was only 500 less than the 48'' . I dont think many people will put that much in a small mower. Me personally would think a 36'' hydro walk behind would be more vesatile to use for hill sides and gated yards. I think it is a well made mower and it looks very well but over priced
