Scag WB naming

Alright, so maybe I'm an idiot... but for the life of me I can't seem to figure out the "logic" behind the naming conventions for scag walkbehind mowers.

SWZ - Fixed Deck & Hydro
SW - Fixed Deck & Belt
SFW - Floating Deck & Belt

One other, with a "U" or an "X" in there someplace I believe, floating deck with hydro. Heard scag discontinued that line.

It's not a big deal, but other than the "W" for "Walk", I just can't fathom the intent of the other letters.

Is someone knows, please tell me so I can have one of those "Oh yeah, of course... why didn't I see that" moments.

I think you have to look at the history of it all.

SW, fixed, belt came first
SWZ, fixed, hydro came next, z for zero turn (even though the belt can also it was a term for hydro riders back then)
SWUZ, float, hydro, they called it the ulitimate w/b which is why the u
SFW float, belt, very new model
