I have a Scag Wildcat, 26 KAW LC, 61" triton deck. Into the 3rd season, about 250 hours so far and it has been a good mower. However I do not like the problems with the radiator. There is a screen on top that is supposed to catch debris before it gets to the radiator, but the radiator itself gets very dirty regardless. Some windy days I literally have to stop and kill the engine every round to clean out the radiator. It think the way the radiator attracts debris is very poor design and I'd go for air cooled if I had it to do over again. A friend just bought a JD 997 with 31 HP diesel and its a hoss. Also liquid cooled of course but the design is so much better - really no way for grass to clog the radiator.
