The Scag Pro-V is officially no longer in production. Late last year Scag was selling 52" Pro-V's for $4600 and 0% financing!! I believe this deal is still good until all remaining are sold.

On a side note I demoed a Pro-V and loved it. It felt like power steering!! Scag thought this would change the industry. I am very surprised it didnt catch on. It really is effortless to operate, even with one hand.

Scag had a run of bad or pinched hydro o-ring seals. Updated seals were designed and put into production. The rest are changed under warranty. The only bad problems I heard about the Pro-V were the controls wear out quick.

No, man.....don't say that. I hate to think that Scag--an American company known for making durable machines--made a mower with quick-wearing controls. Oh well, the V-ride is my second choice.

I was talking to a dealer yesterday and he said they were not selling them becuase who would buy a walk behind for 7 grand when you can get a stand on mower. I got mine dirty cheap last year and thank god i did because its a amazing mower.

Love my old Hustler super walk behind. Wish they would make me a new one. I picked up a low hour one last season. Should be good for several more years. My dealer leaves a lot to be desired, and there aren't many others around. But it sure beats most other WB's in my book.
