The Scag Turf Tiger™
Since its original introduction in 1998, the Turf Tiger™ has
been in a class by itself. There is no competition. Period.
There is no competition.
The Scag Turf Tiger
can cover major grass with ground speeds up to 12mph (10mph on some models) and large, low-mounted fuel tank. The
simple, trouble-free shaft drive cutter deck means minimum maintenance
requirements and a wide range of cutting heights. The double tube
steel main frame gives the mower incredible strength and durability.
From the heavy-duty, Tri-Plate Velocity Plus™ cutter
decks, to the various high-power, fuel efficient engine options like the fuel injected Kawasaki or Kohler EFI, the Caterpillar diesel, propane, or massive 35hp Big Block models, there's
a Tiger that will increase your productivity and send your competition running
Contact your local Scag dealer for a field
demonstration today and see for yourself how the Scag Turf Tiger stands in a class by itself, above the competition.
Alternative fuel Turf Tiger models are also available.

- Heavy-duty hydraulic drive system includes dual 16cc Hydro-Gear
pumps, and Hydro-Gear (29CH-EFI and 750KA models) or Ross
wheel motors (diesel, 791DFI and larger gas models)
for reliable, Zero Turn maneuverability. Hydro-Gear
16cc hydraulic pumps provide smooth, positive and
reliable power to the drive wheels. Extra large input bearing,
input shaft and internal components add to reliability and performance.
Built-in pressure relief valves reduce internal pressure spikes
and add to pump life. Diesel and larger horsepower gas models (12mph ground speed units) feature a cooling fan mounted directly to the pumps
providing additional cooling for added pump life.
- Auxiliary hydraulic oil coolers
keep oil temperatures within a safe operating level and adds
to hydraulic system component life.
- Up to 12 MPH (most models)
MPH (29CH-EFI and 750KA models) forward speeds and
5 MPH reverse speeds keep productivity at a maximum.
- Driveshaft driven cutter deck eliminates
belt slip and provides increased reliability and longevity compared
to a belt drive system.
- Heavy-duty blade drive spindles provide
reliable performance season after season. The Scag spindle easily
handles the high horsepower and torque requirements of this powerful
Three year limited warranty.
- Choose a 52", 61" or 72" Velocity
Plus™ cutter deck. Match
that with a Kawasaki FD750D, 29hp Kohler EFI fuel injected engine, FD791D DFI liquid-cooled Kawasaki
engine; 35hp Briggs Vanguard air-cooled V-twin
engine; or CAT 28hp diesel engine.
- The Kawasaki FD791D DFI (digital
fuel injection) and the 29hp Kohler EFI (electronic fuel injection) are both
incredibly powerful and efficient powerhouses. These engines will
start easier and are more fuel efficient than carbureted models,
reducing overall operating cost.
- The CAT 28hp 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled
diesel engine is a perfect compliment to the
Turf Tiger. This dependable unit delivers amazing power
from an ultra-compact package size. Cutting-edge technology also
ensures that the CAT diesel is clean and quiet running. Scag's
proven rubber iso-mounting system minimizes vibration from the
engine for maximum operator comfort.
- Single fuel tank, 8.5 gallon capacity (11 gal. on CAT diesel) keeps
you in the field cutting grass.Fuel tank is positioned low, in the
center of the machine, enhancing the mower's low center-of-gravity
and giving it excellent hillside stability. Fill up in the morning
and cut all day long.
- Double tube steel main frame construction delivers
superior strength and ensures years of trouble free service. This design
is much stronger than "bolt together" frame designs. The main frame was designed
for an ultra-low center-of-gravity to increase hillside stability.
- The Ogura GT3.5 PTO Clutch Brake delivers
250 ft. lbs. of starting and stopping torque. A GT5 model
with 350 ft. lbs. of torque is used with the 35hp Briggs Vanguard engines.
Adjustable airgap ensures long component life.
- Standard equipment auxiliary
canister air filter system on all Turf Tigers. This
provides increased service intervals and longer engine life.
Kohler engines feature removable access panels for easy cleaning
of the cooling fins.
- Engine radiator is mounted in front of the engine,
as the engine manufacturer intended. Having the radiator positioned
behind the seat offers extra protection against impacts and foreign
material. Hydraulic oil cooler is also
mounted in front of the radiator for maximum airflow and heat dissipation.
- Easily adjust cutting heights from the seat with
the convenient, easy to lift, 3-position adjustable foot pedal. Wide
range of adjustment from 1" to 6" in 1/4" increments (21 different
cutting height settings).
- Custom-Cut Baffle allows you to customize
the cutter deck to your individual cutting conditions.
- Deck leveling adjustment bracket allows for easy
in-the-field deck leveling adjustment.
Operator's Station provides unmatched fatigue-fighting comfort
(diesel, 791DFI & larger gas models). Quick-Fit
control levers, torsion spring
suspension seat, and 3-position deck lift foot pedal combine
to provide unprecedented levels of adjustability and ergonomics.
- Quick-Fit steering control
with dual gas-charged dampers for
smooth, precise responsiveness. Steering levers are adjustable (without
tools) to fit a wide range of operator sizes, increasing operator comfort.
- Suspension seat with cushioned
armrests is adjustable to individual operator weights for increased
support and reduced operator fatigue (standard on diesel, 791DFI and 29hp+
gas models). High-back Soft-Ride seat standard on 27hp and 750KA models; Suspension
- Convenient cup holder keeps beverage securely in
place and within easy reach.
- Extra large 24 inch drive tires and up to 13 x 6 - 6 caster
wheels ensure better traction, less turf tearing and easy
- 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
- "Split-Steel" pulleys are
used on load carrying areas like the cutter deck spindles and pump
drive systems. Split steel pulleys are stronger than cast iron or stamped
pulley designs. Our pulleys are strong for long life and lightweight
for reduced inertia and decreased wear on the cutter deck drive system.
- No plastic pulleys - Some [other brands] actually
use plastic pulleys on their mowers. Not Scag. All Scag pulleys
are made from metal. Plastic is for toys.
- High-quality bearings and bearing debris guard
on idler pulleys ensure long, reliable service.
- Operator friendly instrument panel includes
an ammeter, ignition switch, mower engagement switch, water temperature
gauge (liquid-cooled engines only), separate choke and throttle controls.
The hour meter is conveniently located
at the rear of mower near the engine.
- User-friendly mower design allows quick, clean access
to the engine and filters, for easy maintenance. Rear access panel
exposes self adjusting PTO, and hydraulic pump drive belts.
- Spring loaded idler arms effortlessly
keep belts in constant adjustment for maximum life and minimum maintenance.
- Excellent hillside stability due to an exceptionally
low center-of-gravity and extra wide stance.
- The Scag "Simply the Best" commercial
warranty stands behind you and your mower for years of profitable
- Marbain cutter blades stay sharp
longer for reduced maintenance.
- High quality electrical components such as switches,
wiring and harness looms are used throughout the Scag mower line for
- Foldable Rollover Protection System (ROPS) is standard
equipment and easily fits into enclosed trailers. ROPS provides additional
operator safety. Retractable seatbelts for added convenience.
- Digital SmartSense hour meter displays
maintenance reminders to help ensure that routine service is completed.
- There are many, time saving, money making
for the Turf Tiger like the Tiger Striper
lawn striping kit, spindle driven grass catchers, halogen
light kits and more.
