nice, dawg. I just went and got my 16 ft toro ground master, picked it up just a little bit ago.
Nice setup. I like your scag. Does it work well for ya?
some pics from today.
yeah, i get pretty good use out of the scag. not as much as the 32" and the 21" though. The scag was bought by my grandpa actually. He's 85 and owns 65 acres's in kiln, ms, 45 acres that are cleared and get mowed by it. I have to do all this cutting on the scag since he is not able to do it on his old tractors anymore. I just bring it with me every time i go to cut it but bring it home and use it in New Orleans as much as i can. He is fine with me doing that because of the time i put into his land. That is where the pic's of the open field came from. His house in kiln.
Nice man..it looks great.
Nice stuff, how's the truck doing with that load? I know a guy around here who used to use his S-10 to haul a car trailer with his "show car" on it. Needless to say he practically killed that truck.
The truck does fine with the load. I used to have a 98 s10 that had the 4cyl. but totaled it due to an old couple running a red light(thank god the mowers were strapped down, i hit them doing like 30mph! and couldn't stop in time) That engine didnt like the load to much. But this S 10 which is a 96 has the 4.3L V6 does fine pulling my 32 and 21 and even the scag. Only problem pulling the scag is my suspension. the back of my truck sits a little low when pulling it but power is not the problem having the V6. I was going to add a helper spring in the back to keep the rear end up a bit more but it was gonna be four hundred and something dollars so opted not to do it since i'll be getting my grandpa's old sierra soon enough.
one of the nicer ones..
Wow man how long does it take you to mow the 45acres with the scag? How aften do you have to mow it?
It takes about a day and a half. Thats with one person on the scag and one person on the tractor with a 5ft finish mower on the 3pt hitch.
