    I am in the middle of rebuilding a Scag 61" Advantage Turf Tiger with just over 2300 hours on it. So far I have installed a new Kohler short block, new spindles, wheel bearings, belts, tires etc. I have gone over this machine top to bottom and have really not found anything notable with the exception of a blown motor due to a coil wire being worn thru and wiping a cylinder.

    Which brings me to my question, any scag owners out there that feel the confidence to use this machine as a front line machine next season? I personally do it is a solid machine, just picking some brains and wondering what you all think? I do 19 lawns a week 1/2 to 2 acres in size ( I am a full time Fire Captain and I mow part time) Any thoughts?
    Thanks in advance,
    Stuart

    I would run it with that many accounts no questions asked. Worse case is a hydro goes out.

    I got over 2K on my 2002. Just replaced the engine because it was using to much oil. Most people get a new one just because they want something new.
