  • German Scag Mowers

    I was looking around youtube and I found this Scag video from Germany. *It seems like on some of the mowers in the video they have different decks on them. *Like some sort of brush hog. *Does anyone know anything about this?

    <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/983W8K23qVo&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/983W8K23qVo&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

    I&#39;m especially interested in the deck for the Turf Tiger.

    Check out the dual wheel walk behind. *Weird, right?

    I also went to http://www.scag.de and it seems like they have totally different equipment lines. *What do you folks think?

    Is it possible they just cut off the front of the mowing deck?

        Brandon, thanks for the translator advice. It made it easier to decipher.

        Steve, I did a little research and it seems they sell what they call Humus decks or ESM decks to fit the scag mowers. Check out this website http://www.st-mach.com/ESM.htm. I don&#39;t think they have regular blades on them. It seems they are rotary style blades like this.



        This must void a scag warranty right?

        Has any one tried a mod on their machine like this?

        Is it possible to cut the front of a deck off like steve said to push less material over? (that doesn&#39;t sound safe at all)

          No it doesn&#39;t sound safe at all.

          I was looking at the image from the link

          and I just can&#39;t imagine anything else but a regular mower blade underneath that deck. If it were rotary wouldn&#39;t it have to be powered from the side? Would that be possible under such a small deck?



          Neither the left nor the right side seem to have the hardware I would think would be required to power a horizontal cutting blade.

            So it seems that the red mower deck has a normal blade set up and it also has a front on it that moves to allow larger weeds to pass through. (metal plates)


            I found some pictures of mowers that appear to have side powered cutters. *See the pictures below.

              Ah yes&#33; That would make sense&#33; Do you think such a mower would help you and your business? Have you ever seen them being offered before in the U.S.?

                I don&#39;t have enough of a need to have a full time brush hog mower. I do have a few clients that have some brush hog needs. It would be nice to have the deck and be able to swap them.

                I would be worried though about running my one and only full time zero turn through thick brush. I would hate to break something on it for a small brush hog job. It&#39;s much easier to borrow a Kubota for the day.

                Would you be able to drive a rotary cutter in reverse? Doesn&#39;t that loose a lot of the effectiveness of a zero turn?

                  I would think so.
