My newest toy arrived today. I got a Scag Turf Tiger with a 31 HP Kohler Aegis liquid cooled and fuel injected engine. The Scag has the 61 inch mowing deck. Im going from a Toro Z with 52 inch deck to this new Scag. The difference is night and day. The Toro is the same as a Exmark and feels like a little sports car with a stiff suspension, while the Scag Turf Tiger reminds me of my grandpas Buick Roadmaster - a big cushy boat of a Z. Im getting adjusted to the steering. On the Toro the steering was so responsive it is almost jerky. The Scag is responsive and precise, you just have to get adjusted to the cushy dampening of the steering and compensate for it. You also have to compensate for the Scags impressive size. The cut so is phenomenal. The clippings disperse so well, and it lays down a fairly good stripe with one pass. I cut mine and my neighbors lawn so far. Her lawn looks beautiful. I took pictures of it but its evening and the sunlight just was not working for me and makes the lawn look bad when it isnt. The potential bad news is I found a washer on my drive way. The washer looks new and appears to match the washers on the Scag. Every thing is functioning properly and I cant figure out if the washer is even from the Scag. I checked over the scag the best I could. Hopefully its just coincidence and I dont have a catastrophic failure of a part due to the dealership not tightening a random part correctly. I have a question for the other owners of Scags out there. When I bought my Toro Z the dealer told me to throttle down on the engine when I started the PTO as it would save wear and tear on the clutch. I always have and the Toro is going on 9 years old with the original clutch. Should I do the same with the Scag? Here are some pics. I couldn't resist getting my Exmark TTHP out and putting it next to it.
