How can I tell what deck I have on a Scag swz mower? I bought it used and most of the deck is rusted out. Its a 36 inch but thats all I know.

It just looks like the old standard deck. On the 36 they went to the advantage deck about 10-12 years ago, and still use the same deck today.

Yours is the style they used before the advantage deck. Your deck doesn't look all that bad as for the performance or operation. I don't see any holes in the deck. A little sanding and paint would do wonders.

The mower is in good shape for the most part. The guy said it was working fine and just stopped. He took it to the dealer and they told him that the carb needed replaced. He got a rider and never fixed this one. It looks like maybe part of it was covered but the deck was out in the rain and it rusted. I cleaned the carb and it started right up everything workes too.

I have the same deck too. Cuts great, just as good or a tad better than the advantage. The only thing I've noticed that isn't as good is cutting in wet grass. It clumps easier than the advantage (and I believe the advantage has a bigger discharge opening)

just picked up this mower at least same style and deck. It is a belt drive and it seems like no matter what i have to keep the left grip squeezed about a quarter of the way to keep her going straight. I checked tire pressure and all that is this pretty typical for a belt drive or is there something i can adjust to fix this problem?

Mine is a hydro so i dont know. I know in the manual it talks about tracking so I'm sure there is a way to adjust yours too.

mine has that too. Not a big deal but after awhile your left hand fatigues a lot quicker then your right. Let me know if you figure it out mine is put away for the winter now but i will be trying to adjust it in the spring for sure.
