    hiya looking for some advice of anyone who can help me i use a scag52 walkbehind at my job everyday a few weeks ago my 52 scag went on fire and its a written off to expensive to fix i was wondering if any could tell me how many hours a day should a scag be used for and how often should a scag be cleaned out at the belts and pulleys dont know how often it should be done beacause the firm i work for is trying to sack me for my scag going on fire its over 4 years old at the temp the day in scotland glasgow uk was warm around about 24c any one who can help me would be very helpful thanks i have tried the scag.com website thanks ,how much do they cost there are trying to say £4.500 english pounds.the final outcome was that the metall pulleys stared the fire beacause the metal case that covers the belts had been bent ant stood on that there was a large amount of dry grass in the area of the belts that fulled the fire could that be correct

    It is always a good idea to clean out under the guards of any machine. We through a belt off of a riding mower due to nothing other than plugging on the top of the mower deck. Costed delay and the owner money. Thanks for the reminder to do better at the tedious maintenance. I assume a 'scag' is a 'mower'??
