Scag Gas-Charged Steering Dampers
utilizes high-quality, gas-charged dampers on all zero-turn
rider steering systems. These dampers are an important element
to overall operator control, and have the added benefits of adding
life to the hydraulic system and reducing turf damage.
Know that all gas dampers are not created equal. In lieu of
using high-quality gas dampers, most of our "competitors" use
springs, low quality dampers, or nothing
at all. That reduces their cost to build their mower but
gives you zero additional value in your purchase.
- The dampers reduce operator fatigue by eliminating negative hydraulic system feedback through the levers.
- They eliminate the "jerky" feel while performing tight, precise maneuvers around obstacles.
- The dampers reduce turf tearing by limiting sudden
- The dampers reduce high pressure spikes to the hydraulic system by inhibiting dramatic direction changes.
