Ok, sounds like I probably don't need to worry about scalping.
Any suggestions on the things I should inspect on the used machine? I have been able to drive it and seems to run nicely, but wasn't able to cut anything because the grass hasn't started growing yet. It seems like the hydros were making a whining noise when I was operating them very slowly while performing tight turns. Maybe they were just cold because it was only 35 degrees out.
The Scag does still have 1 year and 3 mo. left on its warranty. Do those usually transfer to the next owner. The dealer also said if anything went wrong in the first year he'd fix it for only the cost of the parts.
