So I am bored and I am checking out the Scag web site last weekend. I come across the new Z Cat 36" Z. I currently have a Scag 36" Hydro Walk Behind that we do our small yards with that have gates. This mower looks great and of course it is built like a brick pooy house. So, I head down to the local Scag dealer and ask to see this little gem. As we walk out to the showroom he is talking it up....it's got this and it's got that.....blah, blah, blah. I check it out and I am impressed. I am thinking to my self......no more sore feet, sore hands, no more velky I am going to be in heaven. I ask the salesman, who just happens to be the owner, what his demo policy is? He tells me "well, we know it is going to cut good cause it's a Scag." "I'll let you take it out and drive it on the pavement, but I don't want to get any grass on it." What!, I blurt out. You mean I can't turn the blades on and mow with it? "Nope, you would be surprised at the fact that most people won't buy a dirty mower." I told him that it has a hour meter on it and it can be washed. "Nope, I just don't think I want to get it dirty" he say's. I proceed to tell him that I would not purchase it unless I could mow with it. "Sorry" was his only reply. Good thing for me I don't have to buy my parts from him....... I just wanted to vent a little.
