I have been evaluating mowers for the last three weeks and have
found a lot of info' about various brands, some good but a lot not
I thought I was interested in a Cub Cadet zero turn with a steering
wheel instead of two handle bars. After reading and looking at
them, this is out for me - deck quite flimsy, poorly built. I
think, but may be wrong, that it is made by MTD, which is generally
a cheaply built machine, but not too bad for the price.
So far, the Scag Freedom Z has caught my attention. Very pricy at
$5300, but certainly well built, convenient controls and something
that should last me for the rest of my life (I'm 73).
I'd like to hear from those who have a Scag and particularly the
Freedom Z model. I'd appreciate your comments - good or bad, as
well as other comments.
Thanks in advance, Bob-tx

the kawasaki air cooled engines. havent seen the one your looking at ,
but seems cheeper in price than the commercial zero turns.maybe a home

I was wondering if anyone knows the skinny on the safety switches on a
scags 48 w 17 kawasaki manual start , its was just in trailor workinf
good when i left it.
when i started it it would run ok whenin reverse. Soon as I put it in
forward it shutts down, I unhooked the harnes going to the safety
switch on the trans , and she goes ahead fine, as usall . Soon as I
engage the blades , she shuts down, Those safety switches are
reverse switches , they have continuitity untill depressed , all seem
ok. The safety is shutting down the blades and forward motion. Does
anyone know about this . ? I replaced one switch needlessly. I thought
of unhooking the ground as its going to ground instantly shutting her
off. The only thing that happened is the clutch fell off a while ago .
I put it back on all was ok . The grounds have been skined or hot ,
but look ok.
the mags have a wire that had a small cut or hot spot as it wa run
close to the head . I changed the routing of the wire to a cooler
place of the head. I am sure I havent found the problem. The other
wire coming from under the fly whell is all taped up like it was
redone- I am kind of lost . ?/ any one got any ideas?
