    Had a dealer price me a scag hydro walk behind 48" with a 17hp Kawasaki for $4849. Is that a good price for a scag?

    Joshua,

    I got a Scag 48" belt drive for $2900... $1800 seems steep for an upgrade to hydro. I bought 2 when I got that price so your price may be slightly higher when only buying one. I didnt price the hydro's b/c I knew they were a little more expensive but this should give you a general idea on that your dealers pricing is like.

    Hope this helps,

    Joshua,

    Seems like it is a little high...about 950.00 high. Arlington Power Equipment sells that same mower for 3899.00. The 48" gear drive with 14 Kawa is 2475.00 There must be a great deal of profit there as I doubt Arlington is selling them at a loss! 1-847-253-5727

    Hey you may want to call Russo's @773-777-1058 and talk to Eric ask him the price on this unit. I know that there is no one better priced in the Chicago metro than them. They are the dealer that other dealers hate because of there price.

    Good luck I just sold a new 48" Scag with a 15 HP Kohler new for $2200.00with a 5 spd.

    I was in the market for a SCAG until I got my Ferris at an acution.

    My local dealer had 2000 SCAGS on sale last week. He
    wanted 4100 for the 48" hydro with a 17 Kawi. He
    wanted 2799 for the 48" belt drive with a 17 Kawi. Both
    were unused, fixed decks, no advantage deck either.

    I also priced a 2001 model at another dealer. He wanted
    3300 for a 48" belt drive.

    Check: http://www.alamia.com

    They do have SCAGS on there.

    if scag is to high check out a 48 lesco very similiar to scag. 48 comes with vtwin kawi. $2200. I own a 52 lesco belt
    drive. I installed a toro T bar for 200. goes in the wet.
    will back up. saved the moneyto buy other tools.
