Scag Power Equipment

Since 1983, Scag Power Equipment has manufactured “Simply the Best” commercial riding, stand-on and walk-behind lawn mowers money can buy. Scag’s innovation and attention to quality is known and respected throughout the industry. If you are looking for the highest-quality, best-built, best-cutting commercial lawn mower or leaf-management equipment proudly made in the USA, look no further.

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.

Why Buy A Scag

Independent Spirit

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 focuses all of its resources on designing, manufacturing and assembling the finest commercial-grade lawn mowers money can buy.

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 our three factories in Mayville, West Bend and Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Scag makes Scag mowers; nobody else makes them for us… and we do not make mowers for other companies.

Experience

Since 1983, Scag Power Equipment has been producing heavy-duty, commercial mowers. This gives us the experience needed to know what really works, and what doesn’t. We listen to our customers and constantly make the changes needed to meet their needs. In fact, every Scag mower receives many improvements and enhancements on a constant basis. Even the smallest improvements are important in creating the “Simply the Best” commercial-grade lawn mowers on the market. This constant product evolution has enabled us to retain our title as the premiere commercial-mower line in the industry. You can find less expensive mowers; however, you get what you pay for.

Design and Testing

We employ an elite group of research and development specialists, designers and engineers dedicated to producing commercial mowers that cut faster, cut better, last longer and ultimately make you more profitable. Computer-aided design (CAD) and Pro-E combined with computer numerical control (CNC) and hands-on fabrication are utilized in the initial creation of every product. Every Scag model is operated extensively in specialized laboratories that utilize sophisticated, computerized testing equipment. The laboratory testing process is handled by a dedicated Test Engineering Team. This initial testing stage allows us to closely monitor mower and individual-component performance to quickly identify any potential improvements that can be made. We also use test facilities in various locations across North America in various climates and grass types.

Quality and Construction

Scag products are fabricated at our parent company, Metalcraft of Mayville, Inc., one of the largest independently owned manufacturers of commercial power equipment in North America. Metalcraft also manufactures thousands of various components for a number of Fortune 500 companies in the construction, forestry, agriculture and material-handling industries, as well as for the U.S. Military.

Scag Power Equipment is one of the last commercial power-equipment companies that actually manufactures their own components. Other mower “manufacturers” are simply assemblers, bolting together parts that other companies have made for them. In fact, every “Scag Gold” component on our mowers is manufactured from scratch by Scag (except for the wheels and ROPS). Sheet metal and tube steel comes in one end of the factory and the world’s best commercial lawn mowers go out the other end. Manufacturing our own component parts allows us greater flexibility in design and more control over the quality of the parts we use in our mowers. Ultimately, we control our own destiny and are able to react quickly with new designs and product enhancements.

Scag mowers are assembled by highly trained individuals using the latest technologies. Each mower is run at the end of the assembly line 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.

Details, details, details. We encourage you to take the time to really examine our mowers and compare them to the “competition.” Pay special attention to the details like ease of service, wiring harness looms and routing, weld quality, component fit and construction, and the operator’s platform. There are lots of mower companies, but only one is the best. We encourage you to see for yourself that Scag is the best by taking the time to really examine the details. It will not take long to find the many differences that place Scag in front of the pack.
