I have bought a new tiger cat from my scag dealer

I will eventually take this mower to the steel scrap yard and sell for scrap steel price. I plan to keep the blades and the deck spindles which will fit my new mower.

NOTE: The fire was HOT - AFRICA HOT. THe back of the mower was completely consumed and the fire was hot enough to melt the aluminum parts of the engine. I know nothing about hydro motors but I know they got really hot in this fire.

Serial: 6600906

Anyone who wants any parts from this mower, PM me and I'll pull them before I haul it to the scrap yard.

Orinicklawncare - I will pm you.

Thanks for your replys. PLEASE learn from my mistakes and be sure to keep fire extinguishers very handy.
Yeah, need one in the truck, trailer and two in the shop (by the bay door & workbench).
