Has anbody else had problems finding Scag dealers that stock parts. Here's the story: This past week my Turf tiger blows a hydro pump, the maching is a 2001 with a thousand hours. I call dealer #1 they don't stock it, will have it the next day. Ok, get the pump the next day install with new wheel motor I purchased from them the day before. Fluid/Filter change jack up the rear wheels open by pass and purge the system for 1 hr. Pump still makes hard chattering. test drive the maching and fluid blows out through the gasket. It is now 10 oclock at night and need the machine working yesterday. Go to dealer next day, Of course they have to order pump because" they don't stock pumps for machings that old" What? it is a 2001 with 1000hrs. Did I mention is has been through 3 clutches. An no, the maching was run by Dad who was very meticulous about maintenance. I tell dealer #1 to order pump and I will call them if I find a dealer local with the pump. Why do they want me to call them to let them know if I found the pump? because they don't want to stock this pump it is to "expensive. I called Dealer #2 they lauphed at me said the same thing pump is to expensive to stock. Dealer # 3 within 15 miles has pump in stock. I pick up pump and have installed within 1hr. Bottom line is if Scag dealers won't stock parts, I think this will be by last Scag. I am running exmark' and lesco's also and have no problem getting parts from the dealers. We are a seasonal business, The grass doesn't stop growing when the mower brakes down. I would think dealers would realized this and keep inventory. Like to know if anybody else has had difficulty getting parts for Scags,Exmarks,Lescos, Ect.
