I’ve had a long affair with John Deere, but I felt I needed a change, and my local tractor dealer (who also sells John Deere) made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
The Scag is a wonderful machine – built to run all day, every day, it is truly a commercial grade piece of equipment. I seriously think it is the last lawn tractor I will ever own. It has an amazing feature set, and everything is built for quick servicing. Need to change the belts? The deck folds up so you can access them. Need to change the battery? The seat flips up, giving very easy access to the battery (and a bunch of other things I don’t recognize).
This is a commercial tractor in a very friendly form-factor. It fits through standard gates, and isn’t too big to put in the garage (or on a small trailer).
It’s also a blast to drive – it uses a tank-like steering mechanism and it does over 8 MPH (which is very fast for a freaking lawn mower!)
It’ll be delivered tomorrow, or Friday. My neighbors are going to freak seeing me on something that isn’t John Deere green.
But they’ll be green with envy when I mow my yard in the time it takes them to get their mowers started 🙂
The Scag Z-Cat. Ultra-Compact Size. Big Time Results. The Scag Z-Cat boasts an ultra-compact design while delivering full commercial-grade performance. This efficient, economical machine is available with a 36″ or 42″ Advantage cutter deck, and engines ranging from 16hp to 19hp. The Scag Z-Cat is designed to mow smaller properties and fit through gates and into tight spaces. Don’t be fooled by it’s smaller stature, the Scag Z-Cat is a true commercial-grade mower. Unlike other low-priced, de-featured mowers on the market today, the Z-Cat is built to the same exacting standards as the rest of the Scag Cat Family of mowers. A dual pump and wheel motor hydraulic system, commercial-grade electric clutch and Scag cutter deck spindles are just a few of the full-size features you will find on this little cat.
