    I have a turf tiger with 140 hours 72” velocity plus deck and it keeps eating belts. It starts fraying them on the outside top of the belt. I got less than an hour out of the last belt. I have checked the pulleys for play or rough spots and found nothing, no debris either. The belt is a monster...

    First time poster, first time Scag owner. I bought a 2008ish 72" Diesel Turf Tiger off FB and I'm trying to figure out a cooling system issue. The mower seems to run great, but it overheats. It will get to operating temp, but after mowing for 15-30min from a cold start, it will creep up and...

    Hey folks, it's been a long time since I've posted... and a lot has changed. I'm out of the rough cut business. I injured my back and shoulder and just can't do it anymore. Aside from an old eXmark Lazer Z, I've always used Toro Groundsmasters for the work I do... simply because they're all...

    I am contemplating buying 2 scag mowers, either the cheetah or TT2. Is the cut quality on the 72 inch the same as the 61inch? They both have Velocity Plus decks but are obviously different dimensions. I’m wondering if the 72 inch stripes and cuts as well as the 61inch. I really would like to...

    I recently bought an older scag turf tiger (maybe a 2001) that I knew had issues when I purchased it. Had to have different coils, spark advance, starter, ignition switch, and valve covers put on. Runs better with the new coils and overall seems to cut ok except when I get sideways on a hill...

    Tried unsuccessfully to search for a similar thread. Engine is Kawasaki FD750DA01816. Have installed new fuel filter. Runs for about 20 minutes and dies relatively quickly. Will start back in a few minutes. Any ideas?

    I know there are a lot of threads here on Scag TT and starting issues and I've had some of them in the past, but none like what I'm having today. When I try to start it, it's turning over but never fires. I'm hearing a lot of rattling I think in the drive belt area but can't quite find it. It...

    Hello, I was recently at my school bus barn and spotted some Turf Tigers sitting, I talked to the mechanic and he said that they had been sitting since he had gotten a job there and all he knew was one had a bad deck and a good hydro pump and the other had a bad hydro. After that I went to the...

    I have a scag with a 27 hp Kawasaki FD750D that has a dead cylinder. It pretty much dies while mowing or even just driving up a hill. Pulled plug wire while running on cylinder 1 (oil filter side) and it dies. Pull plug wire on cylinder 2 and there is no change. Checked compression and it is...

    Hi Everyone, I'm a new member to this forum, but I've been looking around for a handful of years. I mow about 10 yards April-November and my Ferris 1500 48" isn't cutting it (pun intended). It flat-out sucks with wet grass. If I mow before noon and the dew is still on the grass, it's clump city...

    I've had Commercial Grade Hustler lawn mowers for years and have never had any issues with them except for the one time with a hustler super Z HD in the 72 inch size. It was a rear discharge and that's why I got rid of the mower. Rear discharge is absolutely terrible. More to keep up with and...

    Ok so I got my Z930m 54” MOD with fully adjustable suspension seat for my compact/residential ztr. Now when looking at 60 plus size decks it seems scag is the best. I know I dont want a Kohler, I want power to push through the toughest conditions so the possible engines Im looking at are 31...

    I'm trying to find a mulch plate for my Turf Tiger. It is the original Turf Tiger (1998) and has the old style deck. I'm wondering if someone can point me in the right direction with part numbers and such. If this helps, the model number on the deck is SMZ-52. Don't have the serial number handy...

    I've got an old Turf Tiger (Pre Advantage Deck, 1998 model year) that needs a new PTO clutch. I'm wondering if anybody has any advice for removing the old one and installing the new one. I'm fairly limited in experience as far as repairs go, but it SEEMS to be a simple procedure. Any advice...
