    Anyone remember the Scag 72" walk behinds? I just seen a brand new one on Ebay. Holy smokes that is big. Probably too big for a walk behind.

    Anyone know why they quit making them?

    I always thought they would scalp like crazy, being a fixed deck and such few anti-scalp wheels.

    It looks impractical for sure. It looks like it takes the whole point out of a walk behind. If you need a mower that big, you surely don't need to be using a walk behind. But, it looks cool lol...

    Yeah, I always thought the same if you can use a 72 you can fit a ztr on it. I guess maybe if you cut large properties that were nothing but steep hills it could almost make sense.
