About Scag Power Equipment

Scag Power Equipment, a division of Metalcraft of Mayville Inc., was founded in 1983. Originally, the Scag product was manufactured under contract with Metalcraft of Mayville in Mayville, Wisconsin. In 1986, Metalcraft purchased Scag Power Equipment, marking the beginning of a tremendous period of growth for the company.

From just one model, a gear-drive rider, to over 50 models today, Scag Power Equipment has become one of the largest independent manufacturers of commercial mowing equipment in the world. Scag Power Equipment's innovation and attention to quality is known and respected throughout the power equipment industry. Mowers and accessories are designed to be user friendly, with an emphasis on quality, performance, ease of maintenance, profitability and long life.

Being independently owned means our design decisions are not compromised by a large corporate office that also sells sprinklers, vacuum cleaners or "widgets". We are not forced to manufacture products that are just "good enough". The entire Scag Team can focus all of its resources on designing, manufacturing and assembling the finest commercial grade lawn mower money can buy (reference the "Why Buy a Scag" web page for more details). Every mower starts off as sheet steel or tube steel. We punch, press, bend, cut, weld, paint, assemble, package and ship our mowers, and we do it all in one of our two factories.

Scag makes Scag mowers, nobody else makes them for us and we do not make mowers for other companies. Scag mowers are assembled by highly trained individuals using the latest technologies such as pulse air torque guns. Mowers are run at the end of the assembly lines to ensure that the following items are up to specification: engine RPM is set, all safety switches are checked for proper operation, fluids are filled, systems are checked for leaks, and neutral and tracking adjustments are set using special dynamometers that apply load to the drive system. These steps add to the value of every Scag mower and ensure the product is the best it can be when it leaves our factory.
