    Most of my lawns are fairly nice. I have probably mowed with a 52" TT for 25 hours total and have noticed how sturdy (no scalping) and such. It cuts great on my lawns.

    The scag pro-v. Controls are not ideal. First off, I am 6' 3" so when im at full speed (handle bars move down to go forward) plus me being on a velke I can barely reach. This mower would be awesome with anti-scalp wheels and just pistol grips. It is a 52" with a 23 HP kaw so it has plenty of power.

    Anyone have any input on putting anti-scalp wheels on a deck?

    Welding is usually the only way.. At least from my knowledge.. As for now the new scags now have the option of adding the far left and right anti scalp wheels... Wish they did that awhile ago...

    I would find a welder, and have him draw up a plan for you.... I would order the wheel parts off a 61 velocity deck, and have him weld it on...

    I am a fairly decent welder. So I think I should be able to weld them on myself.
    But I will have to sand part of the deck. Is paint for these mowers easy to get/find?

    It is a 52" deck. Did you mean that or did you mean get it for the bigger deck?

    Late reading this thread. Went from a 52" to a 60" deck with no issues. There can be a little scalping on steep side hills. Other than that you should be fine. Don't know about Scag but Exmark sells anti-scalp kits that are bolt on.

    This is what I was looking for. I really like the controls on the Exmarks. Anyone looking to buy my Scag? :usflag:
