What I know is in the spring the reps will have prototype's out like they did with the v ride to let more end users try them out. Most likely for sale in the fall.
For the mower it will have a Kawi FS engine, Freedom style deck with different baffles, freedom spindles, I don't recall the deck height adjustment but I think it was like the sfw walkbehind adjustment, zt3100 hydro's, "ecs" style controls. Price point hopefully around $5k.
Personally I think they are going to what the rest of the mfg's did to hit certain price points which pisses me off. I buy a Scag because it lasts and has high quality materials/design, not due to price point.
Looking for blown Kawi 29HP DFI engine's fd791d, whole thing, intake, throttle body, and electronic's. PM me if you have something you would like to sell.
