canister air filter system on all Sabre Tooth Tigers. This

at a maximum. The Sabre Tooth Tiger is able to mow at very high ground
speeds due to its powerful engine, driveshaft and hydraulic drive system.

system also allows for a wider range of cutting heights (1" to 6").

room for the operator and increased hillside stability. Fully welded,
full length main frame.

low center-of-gravity, center mounted fuel tank and extra wide stance.
- Extra large 24 inch drive tires and 13 x 6 - 6 caster tires
ensure better traction, less turf tearing and easy curb climbing.
Wide tires help distribute mower weight, reducing the pounds per square
inch on the ground, in turn reducing turf damage and caster tracking.
- Flat-Free front caster tires virtually eliminate
downtime and expense caused by flat front tires.
- Tapered roller bearings are utilized in the front
caster wheels and in the caster pivots for durability and reduced maintenance.

water temperature gauge and separate choke and throttle controls. The
hour meter is located near the engine compartment
and runs only when the engine is running.

the field cutting grass. Fuel tank is positioned low, in the center
of the machine, adding to the mower's low center-of-gravity and excellent
hillside stability. Fill up in the morning and cut all day long.
- "Split-Steel" pulley design
is stronger than cast iron or stamped pulley designs. They are precision
matched and lightweight for reduced inertia and decreased wear on the
cutter deck drive system.
- High-quality bearings and bearing debris guard
on idler pulleys ensure long, reliable service.
- Convenient cup holder keeps beverage securely in
place and within easy reach.
- User-friendly mower design allows quick, clean access

Superintendent of Grounds Cedar
Memorial Cemetery, Cedar Rapids IA
|"We purchased two Scag Sabre Tooth Tigers
this spring and we are very amazed by the quality of cut with the
Advantage Deck. We mow 76 acres and when pushed, we can now mow
the whole property in 2-1/2 days with just two machines, where
we used to mow with three 72" 4-wheel drive units and it would
take three days, pushing hard. This machine handles all our hills
as easily as the 4-wheel drives did. Overall, I would have to say
this was the best investment we ever could have made."

|"Scag Power Equipment has been a key
component in the growth and success of our lawn maintenance division
for the past 10 years. Scag mowers have proven dependable, highly
productive and deliver the "great cut" we provide to our loyal
customers. We currently operate Sabre Tooth Tigers, Turf Tigers,
Cougars and SWZ's in our fleet of commercial mowers. We can tackle
any job, regardless of condition requirements with our Scag fleet
of proven performers."
|Phil Goulding, Landscape Service Supervisor,
Oakland County Facilities, Maintenance and Operations
||"To maintain our 300 acre government
campus, we replaced three multi-gang rotary mowers with four Scag
Sabre Tooth Zero Turn Riders. To our pleasant surprise, we cut
our mowing time by almost a full day, at half the equipment cost.
Reliability, productivity, service and quality of cut have been
outstanding. Going with Scag was definitely a "step up" for us."
|Ken Frutiger, Plant Manager, City of Anadarko
||"I set out to prove this mower couldn't
do any better than "the competition". I couldn't have been more
wrong. Test driving it has completely changed my opinion as to
what would be the best mower for our company."
