I can't seem to find that spec anywhere.
Just RIGHT !!!
well DUH. Everybody knows THAT.
20,000 fps, give or take.
holy CRAP. Really??
So that's like, 120,000 feet per minute, right? 0_o
Fast enough to throw a pine cone the size of one of those small size footballs across a street and bounce off a Mustang, I know that.
Is it really 20k? i would love to know myslf i can never seem to find that information and when i ask a scag sales guy he acts like hes' never heard of what that is
I think it's actually a little lower than 20k, more like 18-19k. I'm not sure how much faster it is than a home owner model. I think that's where you get the commercial machine jet engine sound when spooling the blades up vs. a home owner mower.
I just went out and measured one
Brand new Turf Tiger 61" Velocity Plus, 29hp Kawi
Like I said, it's a new unit. Never seen grass. It might pick up a few FPM as things break in.
ANSI limits blade tip speed to 19K FPM
JimQ thanks for the insight!
