    We have a 36" scag and it cuts like poo poo. Always shaggy looking even with sharp blades and a clean deck. We have seen other companys scags produce the same kind of cut. We will never buy another scag for any reason. We had the dealer go over it and adjust everything and we double checked and everything seem's to be set fine. It just doesnt produce a good cut like our bobcat's and lazer's.

    I've got a Scag SSZ that used to cut like that, then P&J Lawncare told me to try Bobcat offset blades. What a difference, it cuts like a differenct machine.

    One of my customers has 2 48" Scags. An older deck and an Advantage deck. She says the older deck leaves a nicer finish than the Advantage deck.

    ours is the older deck and it really cuts like crapola. Only reason we got it because we got it at a good price. I have gotten the blades so sharp that you could barely touch the blade and not get cut. Still didnt help.

    The two 48" scag wb's that I had didn't cut so great either. I think mine were underpowered with 14 hp motors. I really hated them mowers.

    I have a 7yr old scag that cuts better than my ztr I use it everyday any kind of condition and cuts like a champ. All I do is clean and sharpen the blades and of course all the other stuff to. No really I will put my scag agianst anything.
