2012 Scag Power Equipment 61" Propane Turf Tiger
The Propane-Powered Scag Turf Tiger™. Ready to Roar on Propane!
Since its introduction, the Turf Tiger™ 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.

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.
Auxiliary hydraulic oil coolers keep oil temperatures within a safe operating level and adds to hydraulic system component life.
Up to 10.5 MPH 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 mower. Three year limited warranty.
The 52" and 61" Velocity Plus™ cutter decks are an excellent match with the Kohler propane engine.
Standard equipment auxiliary canister air filter system on all Turf Tigers. This provides increased service intervals and longer engine life.
Single 7.9-gallon (33.5 lbs.) propane tank delivers several hours of total run time depending on cutting conditions.
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. The clutch body is riveted together for additional strength. Adjustable airgap ensures long component life.
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.
Comfortable operator's station provides fatigue-fighting comfort. Quick-Fit control levers, high-back Soft-Ride seat, and 3-position deck lift foot pedal combine to provide unprecedented levels of adjustability and ergonomics.
Quick-Fit steering control levers with dual dampers for smooth, precise responsiveness. Steering levers are adjustable to fit a wide range of operator sizes, increasing operator comfort.
Convenient cup holder keeps beverage securely in place and within easy reach.
Large drive tires and caster wheels ensure better traction, less turf tearing and easy curb climbing.
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 maintenance.
"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 volt-meter, ignition switch, mower cutter deck engagement switch, water temperature gauge, oil pressure, separate choke and throttle controls, switch for gasoline and propane. 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 service.
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 trouble-free service. This mower features a 30 CCA (Cold Cranking Amp) "Maintenance Free" battery, alternator, solid state ignition and 15 amp charging system. Dielectric grease at major electrical connections.
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.
