Has the dealer given you a loaner to use while the 3100 is down?
Nope, no loaner. One time they had it for 4 weeks.

Holy s$&@!! You are much more patient than me. I would have taken it to another dealer after 1 week.

Do you know if loaner mowers will be available if needed from the Scag dealer ?

I have a 72" cheetah with the 34 kohler and it has plenty of power, is good on fuel, and is very easy to service.

DONT GET THE 36 BRIGGS. we have had problems with the carb on that engine. On really hot days the carb can lock up and you have to sit there and wait for it to cool down. usually takes 10 minutes.

I would have taken it to another dealer if I could have found all the parts. He had the engine off and parts everywhere.

The Scag dealer said a loaner would be available. Although, he didn't sound very convincing about it when I asked. They are not a large dealer, they have sold mainly to homeowners.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I certainly hope you have better luck with the Scag dealer. Any of the engines are subject to have a problem. Anything with moving parts for that matter. I've had great luck with the Vanguards. No issues with 3 of them running to 2k to 2500 hrs before selling them.
