Never used a scag but mower bogging down might run more gas. I know everyone is giving you a hard time but you might keep a check on this. That's an awful lot of gas to use. At that rate you'd be burning $100 per day in the mower only. With my 60" hustler x-1 23hp I can mow a 8-9 hour work day on 4-5 gallons of gas. It might be 2-3 mower hours.
