Have any of you guys had trouble with vibration coming from the pto shaft? My brother and both have a tt and we have had nothing but trouble. He actually had the whole back of mower fall off.

I bet the guys on here who say a turf tiger is a piece have not owned many others kinds of mowers. You will have problems with every mower that you run if you run hard. Scag Turf Tigers are the best full size Z on the market. I dont like the cubs or the wildcat much, but I love the Turf tigers. I just bought two more brand new ones and have never had a problem out of any of the tt. We run these machines 80% mowing medians and right of ways. If you are going to have a gearbox or a shaft problem, we would have it. Did you buy the mower new? Sure its not anything else jumping on the machine.

Wow. Not sure what the problem is but I hate to hear this. We got TT's and like them well. I've got 1500 plus hours on mine and had to replace a wheelmotor and Hydro pump. Does this qualify it as a piece of junk? No, just something that does bad. Just replaced the inside bearing on the Impeller on the bagging unit. Does this make it junk? No, just another part that failed. Scag is an excellent mower and would buy another in a heart beat. If anything, I'd wished they would redesign them to weigh less.
Lastly, how could those junky, goofy, orange mowers be 2nd in mower sales ONLY to eXmark.
