Does anyone have any experiance with the scag sthm hydro rider from scag?
I know a guy who has one with over 1000 hours on it. He mows a condo complex with it. His has a 61" cut and a 23hp Kohler Engine.
is it good?
How are they on steep ditch banks?

I would have thought you get enough of this stuff during the week!!!

I have a 1999 Sthm w 1400 hrs. They don't need roll bars. Mine was in Turf
2004 " Talkin bout my gear". The deck is easy to work on. The only problem
is its a fixed deck. I put an Enginaire pre-cleaner and a large Kohler muffler
to improve performance. They don't get stuck. raise the deck to change
weight transfer. You can run the deck off a curb by raising the deck slightly.
I took a leaf out of the seat to soften the ride. You are last into a hazard not
first as on a midmount. Ed
I have an OLD gear drive one. OLD. Like 1900 hours or so. 48" deck. It's got a Kohler twin engine, I think it's an 18 horse.
I used it mainly to mow un-developed lots. It's a rock eater, lol. Very durable, took a lot of abuse. Easy to work on, not bad on gas.
Anytime I was about to get stuck in the mud, I just raised the deck and that puts a bunch of weight on the drive wheels.
Well he mows some pretty steep banks with it. He has only had a few minor problems with it. He likes it and it always leaves a pretty nice cut with little scalping.
