Propane-Powered Scag Turf Tiger

Scag Turf Tiger Ready to Roar on Propane!

Since its introduction, the Turf Tigerô has been in a class by itself. While other mowers attempt to compare, none come close. You simply can not find a more heavy-duty, feature packed commercial mower. The double-tube main frame, driveshaft driven deck, heavy-duty hydraulics, cast-iron cutter deck spindles, adjustable PTO clutch brake and pure industrial quality front to back, set the Turf Tiger apart from everything else on the market.

Ozone action day* or bidding a job for a "green" client? No problem. The propane-powered Turf Tiger will cut vast amounts of grass and leave beautiful results with the Velocity Plus cutter deck. The propane tank is a standard issue tank you would find on most forklifts and other propane powered equipment. No special tanks or fill procedures required, unlike other propane powered mowers on the market today.
