best mower/ deck for discharge

  1. hi Im looking form a new mower this year. I have a scag tiger cub with an advantage deck. with a 25 koehler. It works well but I have some properties that I have to double cut because of grass left behind. Does anyone know of a better machine to use?

    Dixie chopper 2744. 27 hp Generac and 3 16" blades. I can honestly cut a ft tall grass at about 5 mph and not leave anything behind it'll just shoot out the side 10 ft :) Generac engines hp rating are what the actually put out unlike most other companies. If your Kohler says 25 hp, its prob putting out 21-22 hp.

    Yeah, a bagging unit for the Scag. There probably all very similar when cutting grass thats over 4-5 inches tall. Unless you find one that discharges to ten feet away a bagger is the only thing I can think of.

    Husqvrana pz that thing throw grass like crazy 12-15 feet plus. I have cut 4 foot grass and never left a stragler, great cut great ride, great price and great warranty.
    Just an option.

    Dixie choppers have the highest legal blade tip speed, mix that with x-blades, 6 hi-lift blades = launching grass like the space shuttle.
