*New* Scag Walk Behind

I've read a couple threads on here regarding the new Scag walk behind, and figured I would help build some excitement. I won't share too much, as more details will be out in the coming weeks, however, I do think you guys will be impressed with this machine. The biggest new attribute is an amazing control system that is honestly the simplest and most intuitive system out. This thing lays down some beautiful stripes as to be expected, with a modified baffle system on the freedom deck, and comes in at a lower price point than you might think. See attached and be on the look for these in showrooms near you soon.

doesn't look any different than the Exmark ECS and if it's not going to have the Velocity deck, what's the big deal?

Im very excited to see what scag is going to bring to the table. also, I too have heard that the control are similar in a way to the exmark ECS control. And lastly why the heck would they drop the velocity plus deck from the walk-behind line of mowers?

The deck height adjustment looks very fragile

It looks cheaply built to me. It also looks similar to the walk behinds they built 12 years ago, pre advantage deck, just without the pistol grips.

I have that same deck on my scag WB, the original and actually prefer it to the newer models. I also like how it is short. I was really getting tired of how long WBs were becoming. Looks kinda cheap but we will see
