    Is there a site that puts serial numbers to years of scag mowers ? I have a Turf Tiger and a few others I'd like to know the year of.
    Thanks...

    I know I can download the manuals from the scag site, but don't know for sure if the manual year goes directly with the model year. I've looked all over the scag site and don't see a year guide.

    I think it works the same with all serial numbers, not model number!
    Look as your serial number

    example:
    250000513- made in 2005
    260000513-made in 2006
    270000513-made in 2007 and so on......
    Look at the first and 2nd numbers.

    If your serial number starts with a 3 then it is a 1998, a 4=1999, 5=2000 so for and so on. If it starts with an A then it is a 05 B=06

    Ok....I just bought a Scag Walk Behind Mower...My first one and I love it!!! But, i need some parts for so I am wondering if anyone could help me find out the year of my mower. All the sticker says is "Scag Model SW-13....Serial 0080" I can't find the year for that serial number anywhere. Please Help. Thanks

    That is a pretty old belt w/b. It has a manual clutch? Most likely it is late 80's early 90's. The good thing is most parts have not changed much. I would download a early sw manual on scag's site and compare it to yours.

    Major differences is 95 and newer has electric clutches and the current spindle. Older has the aluminum spindle housings. Side plates on the belt drive changed in the 2000's but could be interchanged I believe. Decks in 2001 and 2005 changed also.

    I just found a used WB with serial #7080325.

    What year model would that make it?

    Thanks.
