The Scag SWZT - Hydro-Drive Walk-Behind
Its outstanding operator control system, floating, easy-adjust cutter deck and smooth and powerful hydraulic drive system makes mowing a dream. In fact the SWZT may just be the smoothest walk-behind Scag has ever built. The incredibly ergonomic control system was designed to make operation easy, not a fatigue causing fight. The controls not only contour to the natural angles of your extended hands, but are placed to keep your hands out of harms way when mowing next to trees and bushes. The main control bar is tied together at the top for additional strength and leverage.  When it's time to mow, simply set your desired forward speed, flip the thumb releases and you are off to an enjoyable mowing experience. Use the numbered forward speed selector to find just the right speed for the job at hand.  Dual hydraulic ZT-2800 transaxles with cooling fans and steel fan covers allow independent, amazingly smooth and positive power to each wheel. With counter-rotation turning, one wheel moves forward while the other moves backward during a zero-turn, minimizing scuffed turf and increasing maneuverability in heavily landscaped areas.

Adjust-A-Trac feature  "Split steel" pulleys Hour Meter Marbain Blades Self Tensioning Belt
"Adjust-A-Trac" feature lets you conveniently adjust neutral and the tracking settings instantly, without any tools. Available on hydro drive
models only.
"Split Steel" Pulley design is stronger than cast iron or stamped pulley designs. These pulleys are precision matched and lightweight for reduced inertia and decreased wear on the cutter deck drive system. An hour meter allows you to easily keep track of scheduled maintenance for your mower. An hour meter can easily be installed on any Scag walk behind. All Scag cutter blades are meade of a special steel called Marbain.  Marbain blades are stronger and harder which means they need less sharpening and resist bending better than typical steel.  They are lighter in weight than typical steel which produces less wear on the pto clutch. Spring tensioned hydraulic drive belt system eliminates adjustments and adds to belt life and reliability.

Scag Spindle Drive Catcher

Scag 48 or 52" Tiger Cat or Cheetah bagger. Impeller drive, triple bag design, holds 15.9 bushels 
(148 gallons)
Scag Triple Bagger set up pulverizes the debris so it takes up less space and holds more. 
For 61" Cheetahs and all Turf Tigers series
15.9 bushel (148gallon) triple bag setup, fits Turf Tigers, Wildcats and Tiger Cubs.  Easy to use strap hold down set up.  Three bags making dumping easier. Extremely durable 7 gauge all steel housing which is angled in the front for riding over uneven terrain.  Extra large greaseable bearings ensure long life.
Easy empty Dumping Bagger, never leave the seat!
Click here for a larger picture! The Scag "CS" Clam Shell Grass Catcher is the perfect answer for operators that do not want to leave the seat to dump their debris. The large capacity hopper (12 bushels) is tapered to allow the debris to dump easily.  This bagger is equipped with the Scag auto-sweeper which engages every time the dump lever is pulled. It pushes out any stubborn debris and ensures the hopper is clean. Having the hopper
completely empty maximizes productivity.  The dump lever can be mounted on the left or right side for operator convenience and comfort. After the initial installation, The entire catcher assembly can be removed and reinstalled in minutes without any tools! Just pull three quick-pins, release the belt and lift it off.
CS hopper The debris screen removes from the side of the hopper. This allows the operator to remove and clean the screen anytime it is necessary.  Other designs require the rear door to be opened in order for the screen to be cleaned. This causes the operator to cease production and empty the hopper just to clean the screen. The CS catcher debris screen can be cleaned at any time, without having to empty the hopper. 
The hopper door latches automatically engage when the door is shut. This prevents the door from opening even when traveling on rough terrain. Front weight system is standard equipment. The front weights counterbalance the weight of the rear mounted collection bags.
Powerful yet compact blower design The all steel blower assembly is driven by the cutter deck via a self-adjusting belt idler system, rather than an auxiliary engine. That means a more compact design, less maintenance, less initial cost, quieter operation and less overall weight.
The 12 bushel capacity hopper collects debris from a blower that pulverizes the debris, reducing particle size and
   increasing the density inside the hopper. What does this mean to you? Shredding the debris allows you to pack 50% to
         over 100% more into the same amount of space when compared to other grass catchers on the market.
Simply put, you will be able to collect more!

Looking for the Ultimate Mulcher?

Double Cut Eliminator Mulching Blades Deflectors
The unique Hurricane Plus Mulch System employs "Eye of the Hurricane" mulching plates combined with bolt-in v-baffles and flow directors. Eliminator blades, a side discharge close-off plate and hardware complete the system. The result is the best performing, most productive mulching system available for commercial mowers! Because the cutting chambers are not completely separated, grass clippings travel between the chambers for high-velocity mulching.  Each Hurricane kit includes a set of serrated “Eliminator” mulching blades with a high lift, “double-cut” edge for quick, thorough shredding of grass clippings and debris. Vital nutrients are put back into the soil.  The Hurricane Plus Mulch System fits all* 2006 and newer Scag mowers with Velocity Plus cutter decks (there is a Hurricane Mulch System available for 2004 and newer Advantage decks as well). Installation time is approximately 20-30 minutes. To return to side discharge mode, simply remove the v-baffles and reinstall the Custom-Cut baffle and standard Scag cutting blades. The “Eye of the Hurricane” mulching plates can stay in place.

Productivity Chart
Riding mowers based on 6mph average cutting speed.
Walk-Behinds based on 4mph average cutting speed.

The dictionary defines "productivity" as " producing abundantly " and " yielding favorable or useful results ". We see it like you do; it's all about doing more in less time. In short, increasing your bottom line and strengthening your business. 
We build productivity into every mower that leaves our factory. For example: the Velocity Plus cutter deck that allows you to mow taller grass faster, with a beautiful finished cut. The special baffling, airflow and ultra-high blade tip speeds get the grass cut and discharged out of the deck in a big hurry. Engines with high horsepower and torque ratings keep everything up to speed, even in heavy conditions. High output hydraulic systems enable our mowers to cover a lot of ground quickly, getting the job done faster.   Comfort items such as high back adjustable seats, large foot plates, steering control dampers, and EZ-Grip hand controls keep fatigue to a minimum, ensuring that the operator is able to perform safely and at their best, all day long. 
Let's not forget about reliability and dependability. These are two very important elements in the productivity formula. If your mower goes down, your productivity goes down! Using anything other than the best quality parts and manufacturing procedures can increase the likelihood of downtime. That's why we use nothing but the best when creating a Scag mower. Anything less would be unproductive. Anything less is not a Scag. 

 A realistic calculation of productivity should include a 20% allowance for overlap and turns.
 Here is an explanation of the formula for calculating the number of acres per day that a mower
 will cut: Acres per day = Miles per Hour x 5280 Feet per Mile x Width of Cutter Deck (in inches)
 x 8 hours per day divided by 43,560 Square Feet per Acre divided by 12 Inches per Foot.
