ROLL-OVER PROTECTION SYSTEM PROGRAM
Operation of zero-turn radius commercial lawnmowers around ponds, sudden drop-offs and steep
slopes can be hazardous if the operator does not proceed cautiously.
Scag Power Equipment is concerned with your safety. A Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS),
when used in combination with seatbelts
and safe operating practices, are effective in reducing serious injuries and death from
Do not operate on any slope you cannot back up with
the cutter deck down and stay off of
any slope of more than 15 degrees with Scag riding mowers. Cut
these slopes with a walk-behind mower or
hand-held trimmer. If obstructions, walls or drop-offs prevent
you from reaching the bottom of the
slope to attempt to try the back-up test, stay off of the slope
with the riding mower. Do not operate
close to drop-offs or along the banks of ponds.
|Newer Scag zero-turn radius commercial lawnmowers are designed

Turf Tigers and Sabre Tooth Tigers have optional or standard
ROPS accessories. Tiger Cubs made in

or have ROPS as standard equipment.
