WARNING
This machine is equipped with an interlock
system intended to protect the operator and
others from injury. This is accomplished by
preventing the engine from starting unless the
deck drive is disengaged, the neutral lock lever
is in the neutral lock position, and the operator
is in the operating position. The system shuts off
the engine if the operator steps off the operator
platform with the deck drive engaged or if the
neutral lock lever is placed in the drive position
(D) and the parking brake is applied. Never operate
equipment with the interlock system disconnected
or malfunctioning.

explosive or cause a “runaway” engine condition
that could result in engine damage and/or
personal injury.
4.2 SAFETY INTERLOCK SYSTEM
The mower is equipped with an interlock system
intended to protect the operator and others from injury.
This is accomplished by preventing the engine from
starting unless the deck drive is disengaged, the neutral
lock lever is in the neutral lock position, and the operator
is in the operating position. The system shuts off the
engine if the operator steps off the operator platform
with the deck drive engaged or if the neutral lock lever
is placed in the drive position (D) and the parking brake
is applied. Never operate equipment with the interlock
system disconnected or malfunctioning.
1. Be sure the fuel shutoff valve, located by the fuel
tank, is completely open. See Section 7.5.
2. Place the neutral lock lever in the neutral position
and disengage the the cutter blades .
3. Engage the parking brake.
4. If the engine is cold, choke the engine as needed.
5. Move the engine throttle control to about half engine
speed.
6. Turn the ignition key to the start position and start
the engine.

4.5 GROUND TRAVEL AND STEERING
- NOTE Smooth operation of the steering control levers will
produce smooth mower operation. While learning
the operation of the steering controls, keep the
travel speed low.
- IMPORTANT If you are not familiar with the operation of a
machine with lever steering and/or hydrostatic
transmissions, the steering and ground speed
operations should be learned and practiced in
an open area, away from buildings, fences, or
obstructions. Practice until you are comfortable
with the handling of the machine before attempting
to mow. Learn the operation on flat ground before
operating on slopes.
Reverse Travel
Caution
Disengage power to the mower before backing
up. Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely
necessary and then only after observation of the
entire area behind the mower.
- IMPORTANT Start practicing with a slow engine speed and slow
forward travel.
Learn to feather the steering controls to obtain a
smooth operating action.
Caution
Practice operating the mower until you are
comfortable with the controls before proceeding
to mow.
Before backing up, observe the rear for persons
and obstructions. Clear the area before backing
up. Possible injury or property damage could
occur.
Forward Travel
To travel forward with the mower, disengage the parking
brake, place the neutral lock lever in the drive (D) position
and slowly push the steering control levers forward an equal
distance. The further the steering control levers are pushed
forward, the greater the forward speed will be. To increase
the speed, push the steering control levers forward and
to decrease speed, pull the steering control levers back.
See Figure 4-2.
To travel in reverse, pull both steering control handles
back. Keep the travel speed low while traveling in
reverse.
- NOTE The mower may not travel straight in reverse.
Slight adjustments may need to be made using
the steering controls.
To stop the forward travel completely, pull the steering
control levers back to the neutral position.
To steer the mower to the left while traveling forward,
pull the left steering control lever back. The further the
steering control is pulled back, the quicker the mower will
turn left. See Figure 4-3.
To steer left while traveling in reverse, allow the left
steering control lever to move forward. The further
the control is allowed to move forward, the quicker the
mower will turn left.
To steer the mower to the right while traveling forward,
pull the right steering control lever back. The further the
steering control is pulled back, the quicker the mower will
turn right. See Figure 4-3.
To steer right while traveling in reverse, allow the right
steering control lever to move forward. The further
the control is allowed to move forward, the quicker the
mower will turn right.
To stop the reverse travel, allow the steering control levers
to return to the neutral position. If the mower is to be
parked, engage the parking brake and place the neutral
lock lever in the neutral (N) position.

3. To disengage the deck drive, push the switch in to
the disengage position.
6. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position and remove
the key.
4. Always operate the engine at full throttle to properly
maintain cutting speed. If the engine starts to lug
down, reduce the forward speed and allow the
engine to operate at maximum RPM.
4.9 AFTER OPERATION
1. Wash the entire mower after each use. Do not
use high pressure spray or direct the spray onto
electrical components.
4.7 HILLSIDE OPERATION
- IMPORTANT Do not wash a hot or running engine. Cold water
will damage the engine. Use compressed air to
clean the engine if it is hot.
WARNING
DO NOT operate on steep slopes. Under no
circumstances should the machine be operated
on slopes greater than 20 degrees. See Figure 2-1,
Page 5 to determine approximate slope of area to
be mowed. ALWAYS FOLLOW OSHA APPROVED
OPERATION.
2. Keep the entire mower clean to inhibit serious heat
damage to the engine or hydraulic oil circuit.
3. Check the drive belts for proper alignment and any
signs of wear. Correct and adjust if necessary.
Danger
1. This mower has been designed for good traction and
stability under normal mowing conditions. However,
caution must be used when traveling on slopes,
especially when the grass is wet. Wet grass reduces
traction and steering control.
To avoid injury from burns, allow the mower
to cool before removing the fuel tank cap and
refueling.
2. Stay two cut widths away from slopes, drop offs,
ditches and retaining walls.
3. To prevent tipping or loss of control, do not start or
stop suddenly, avoid unnecessary turns and travel
at reduced speed. If tires lose traction, disengage
blades and proceed slowly off the slope.
4. After the mower has cooled down, fill the fuel tank
with fresh, clean fuel at the end of every day of
operation. See Engine Owner's Manual for proper
octane requirements.
4. Avoid sudden starts when mowing uphill. Sudden
starts may cause the machine to tip backwards.
5. Check the tire pressure. Adjust pressure if
necessary.
5. Loss of traction may occur when traveling down hill.
Weight transfers to the front of the machine and
may cause the drive wheels to slip causing loss of
braking or steering.
4.10 REMOVING CLOGGED MATERIAL
Danger
6. Never back down hill.
7. Keep tires properly inflated.
ROTATING BLADES
4.8 PARKING THE MOWER
NEVER PUT YOUR HANDS INTO THE DISCHARGE
CHUTE FOR ANY REASON!
1. Park the machine on a flat, level surface only. Do not
park the machine on an incline.
Shut off the engine and remove the key and
only then use a stick or similar object to remove
material if clogging has occurred.
2. Disengage the cutter blades.
3. Shift the neutral lock lever into the neutral (N)
position.
4. Engage the parking brake.
5. Slow the engine to idle speed.
15
Section 4
R
1. If the discharge chute becomes clogged, shut off
the engine and remove the ignition key. Using a stick
or similar item, dislodge the clogged material. Then
resume normal mowing.
8. Use the alternate stripe pattern for best lawn
appearance. Vary the direction of the stripe each
time the grass is mowed to avoid wear patterns in
the grass.
4.11 MOVING MOWER WITH ENGINE
STOPPED
4.13 ADJUSTING CUTTING HEIGHT
The mower deck can be adjusted from a height of 1-1/2
inch to 4-1/2 inches at 1/4-inch intervals. To adjust the
cutting height:
To “free-wheel” or move the mower around without the
engine running, place the dump valve levers in the FREEWHEEL position. Disengage the parking brake and move
the mower by hand. The dump valve levers must be
returned to the DRIVE position and torqued to 7-10 ft/lbs
to drive the mower.
WARNING
DO NOT adjust the cutting height with the mower
blades rotating. Disengage the power to the cutter
blades, put the neutral lock lever in the neutral
position, apply the parking brake and then adjust
cutting height.
4.12 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MOWING
1. Do not mow with dull blades. A dull blade will tear
grass, resulting in poor lawn appearance and
reduced mowing power.
WARNING
1. Disengage the power to the cutter blades.
2. Pull on the cutter deck lift lever lever all the way
backward until it locks in place. See Figure 4-5.
DO NOT operate without Discharge Chute,
Mulching Kit, or entire Grass Catcher properly
installed.
3. Insert the lanyard pin into the cutting height index
at the desired cutting height. Pull backward on the
cutter deck lift lever, push and hold the lock button
See Figure 4-5. Slowly release the cutter deck lift
lever. A deck height decal is located on the cutting
height index as an aid in adjusting the deck to the
desired height.
2. The discharge chute must not be removed and
must be kept in the lowest position to deflect grass
clippings and thrown objects downward. Direct the
side discharge away from sidewalks or streets to
minimize cleanup of clippings. When mowing close
to obstacles, direct the discharge away from the
obstacles to reduce the chance of property damage
by thrown objects.
CUTTER DECK
LIFT LEVER
3. Cut grass when it is dry and not too tall. Do not cut
grass too short (cut off 1/3 or less of existing grass
for best appearance). Mow frequently.
LANYARD PIN
4. Keep mower and discharge chute clean.
5. When mowing wet or tall grass, mow the grass twice.
Raise the mower to the highest setting for the first
pass and then make a second pass to the desired
height.
6. Use a slow travel speed for trimming purposes.
7. Operate the engine at full throttle for best cutting.
Mowing with a lower RPM causes the mower to tear
the grass. The engine is designed to be operated at
full speed.

Custom-Cut Baffle Adjustment
The Custom-Cut Baffle is designed to deliver optimum
airflow and superior cutting performance in any type of
grass. The Custom-Cut Baffle can be raised or lowered
to precisely tailor the deck's performance for the type of
grass being cut. The baffle can be set in seven (7) different
positions for optimum performance.
A. 3-1/2" or 3-3/4" Position - See Figure 6-7. For very
tall, wiry or tough-to-cut grass.
B. 4" (factory setting), 4-1/4" or 4-1/2" Position - See
Figure 6-7. For general purpose cutting. This gives the
best mix of cutting performance in all types of grass.
C. 4-3/4" or 5-1/4" Position - See Figure 6-7. Placing
the baffle in either the 4-3/4" or 5-1/4" setting will
enhance fall cutting (leaf pickup) and reduce cutter
deck "blowout".

the mower. In addition to starting and stopping the power
flow to the cutter blades, the clutch also acts as a brake to
assist in stopping blade rotation when the PTO is switched
off or the operator presence circuit is interrupted.
When the clutch is disengaged, the air gap between the
armature and rotor must be adjusted to fifteen thousandths
of an inch, 0.015, for proper operation. The airgap
adjustment is made at three bolts on the clutch. There are
three inspection windows, one next to each adjusting bolt.
See Figure 6-8.
INSPECTION WINDOW (x3)
ADJUSTMENT NUTS
Figure 6-10. Clutch Air Gap Adjustment
Figure 6-8. Clutch Air Gap Adjustment
This adjustment should be done every 500 hours of
operation or annually, whichever comes first. In cases
where the machine is heavily used, airgap settings should
be checked more often.
1. Locate the inspection windows on the clutch.
2. Place a 0.015 feeler gauge in the slot between the
rotor and the armature. See Figure 6-9.
INSERT 0.015 FEELER GAUGE HERE
If the air gap is too narrow, the clutch armature may drag
when disengaged, resulting in premature failure.
If the air gap is too wide, the clutch may be slow to engage
as the magnet must pull the armature in from a greater
distance.
6.8 FrONT WEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
This mower has been designed for good traction and
stability under normal mowing conditions. However, caution
must be used when traveling on slopes, especially when
the grass is wet. Wet grass reduces traction and steering
control.
Figure 6-9. Clutch Air Gap Adjustment
3. Tighten or loosen the adjusting bolt as needed to
acheive the 0.015 inch airgap. See Figure 6-10.
Perform this operation at all three inspection
windows.
The 36" model comes standard with two (2) weights installed
and the 48", 52" and 61" models come standard with one
(1) weight installed. All models must not be operated with
less than the number of weights listed above.

B. Changing Hydraulic Oil
A. Checking Hydraulic Oil Level
The hydraulic oil should be changed after every 500 hours
or annually, whichever occurs first. The oil should also be
changed if the color of the fluid has become black or milky.
A black color and/or a rancid odor usually indicates possible
overheating of the oil, and a milky color usually indicates
water in the hydraulic oil.
The hydraulic oil level should be checked after the first 8
hours of operation. Thereafter, check the oil after every
200 hours of machine operation or monthly, whichever
occurs first.
- IMPORTANT -
- IMPORTANT -
The hydraulic oil should be changed if you notice
the presence of water or a rancid odor to the
hydraulic oil.
If the oil level is consistently low, check for leaks
and correct immediately.
1. Wipe dirt and contaminants from around the
reservoir cap. Remove the cap from the hydraulic oil
reservoir.
1. Park the mower on a level surface, stop the engine
and remove the ignition key.
2. Place a suitable container under the hydraulic
oil filter. Remove the fill cap from the reservoir.
Remove the drain plug from the fitting on the filter
base. See Figure 7-3. Allow the fluid to drain into the
container and properly discard it.
2. Visually check the level of hydraulic oil. Hydraulic
oil must be at least 2-1/4" inches from top of the
filler neck. If the level cannot be determined visually,
use a clean tape measure to check the level. If the
fluid is low, add 20W50 motor oil. DO NOT overfill;
(overfilling the oil reservoir may cause oil seepage
around the cap area).
3. Re-install the drain plug into the tee fitting and be
sure it is tight.
3. Clean the fill cap and install it onto the reservoir.
- NOTE Before refilling the hydraulic oil reservoir the
hydraulic oil filter should be changed as outlined
in Procedure C "Changing Hydraulic Oil Filter
Element".
4. Fill the reservoir to full 2-1/4" inches below the filler
neck with 20W50 motor oil.
5. Replace the reservoir fill cap. Start the engine and
drive forward and backward for two minutes. Check
the oil level in the reservoir. If necessary, add oil to
the reservoir.

A. Charging the Battery
7.8 CUTTER BLADES
Refer to the battery charger’s manual for specific
instructions.
A. Blade Inspection
1. Remove the ignition key before servicing the blades.
Under normal conditions the engine’s alternator will have
no problem keeping a charge on the battery. If the battery
has been completely discharged for a long period of time,
the alternator may not be able to recharge the battery, and
a battery charger will be required.
2. Raise the mower deck to the highest position. Place
the lanyard pin in the highest cutting height position
to prevent the cutter deck from falling.
WARNING
DO NOT charge a frozen battery. It may explode and cause
injury. Let the battery warm before attaching a charger.
Always wear proper hand and eye protection when
working with cutter blades.
Whenever possible, remove the battery from the mower
before charging and make sure the electrolyte covers the
plates in all cells.
3. Check the cutter blades for straightness. If the cutter
blades appear bent, they will need to be replaced.
WARNING
WARNING
BATTERIES PRODUCE EXPLOSIVE GASES.
Charge the battery in a well ventilated space so
gases produced while charging can dissipate.
Do not attempt to straighten a bent blade, and
never weld a broken or cracked blade. Always
replace it with a new blade to assure safety.
Charging rates between 3 and 50 amperes are satisfactory
if excessive gassing or spewing of electrolyte does not
occur or the battery does not feel excessively hot (over
125°F). If spewing or gassing occurs or the temperature
exceeds 125°F, the charging rate must be reduced or
temporarily stopped to permit cooling.
4. If a blade cutting edge is dull or nicked, it should be
sharpened. Remove the blades for sharpening. See
"Blade Replacement."
- NOTE Keep the blades sharp. Cutting with dull blades not
only yields a poor mowing job, but slows the cutting
speed of the mower and causes extra wear on the
engine and the blade drive by pulling hard.
B. Jump Starting
1. The booster battery must be a 12 volt type. If a
vehicle is used for jump starting, it must have a
negative ground system.
B. Blade Sharpening
2. When connecting the jumper cables, connect the
positive cable to the positive battery post, then
connect the negative cable to the negative battery
post.
- NOTE If possible, use a file to sharpen the blade. Using
a wheel grinder may burn the blade.
- NOTE DO NOT sharpen the blades beyond 1/3 of the
width of the blade. See Figure 7-7.
1. Sharpen the cutting edge at the same bevel as the
original. See Figure 7-7. Sharpen only the top of the
cutting edge to maintain sharpness.

LIMITED WARRANTY - COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT
Any part of the Scag commercial mower manufactured by Scag Power Equipment and found, in the reasonable judgment of Scag, to
be defective in materials or workmanship, will be repaired or replaced by an Authorized Scag Service Dealer without charge for parts
and labor during the periods specified below. This warranty is limited to the original purchaser and is not transferable. Proof of purchase
will be required by the dealer to substantiate any warranty claims. All warranty work must be performed by an Authorized Scag Service
Dealer.
This warranty is limited to the following specified periods from the date of the original retail purchase for defects in materials or
workmanship:
• Wear items including drive belts, blades, hydraulic hoses and tires are warranted for ninety (90) days.
• Batteries are covered for ninety (90) days.
• Frame and structural components including oil reservoir and oil coolers are warranted for two (2) years (parts and labor) for commercial use or three (3) years / 500 hours (whichever comes first) (parts and labor) for non-commercial use.
• Cutter decks are warranted against cracking for a period of three (3) years. (parts and labor 1st and 2nd year; parts only 3rd year.)
The repair or replacement of the cutter deck will be at the option of Scag Power Equipment. We reserve the right to request components for evaluation. This warranty does not cover any mower that has been subject to misuse, neglect, negligence, or accident, or
that has been operated in any way contrary to the operating instructions as specified in the Operator’s Manual.
• Engines and electric starters are covered by the engine manufacturer’s warranty period.
• Major drive system components are warranted for two (2) years (parts and labor) for commercial use or three (3) year / 500 hour
(whichever comes first) (parts and labor) for non-commercial use by Scag Power Equipment. (commercial and non-commercial warranty excludes fittings, hoses, drive belts). The repair or replacement of the hydraulic pump or hydraulic motor will be at the option of
Scag Power Equipment. This warranty does not cover any mower that has been subject to misuse, neglect, negligence, or accident,
or that has been operated in any way contrary to the operating instructions as specified in the Operator’s Manual.
• Electric clutches have a Limited Warranty for two (2) years (parts and labor) for commercial use or three (3) year / 500 hours
(whichever comes first) (parts and labor) for non-commercial use.
• Spindle assemblies have a Limited Warranty for three years (parts and labor 1st year and 2nd; parts only 3rd year).
• Any Scag product used for rental purposes is covered by a 90 day warranty.
The Scag mower, including any defective part must be returned to an Authorized Scag Service Dealer within the warranty period. The
expense of delivering the mower to the dealer for warranty work and the expense of returning it to the owner after repair will be paid
for by the owner. Scag’s responsibility is limited to making the required repairs and no claim of breach of warranty shall be cause for
cancellation or rescission of the contract of sale of any Scag mower. “Non-Commercial” use is defined as a single property owner,
where the single property is the residence of the owner of the mower. If the mower is cutting more than the owners single property, it is
deemed commercial use and the “non-commercial” warranty does not apply. Scag Power Equipment reserves the right to deny and / or
void the non-commercial warranty if it believes it to be in commercial use.
This warranty does not cover any mower that has been subject to misuse, neglect, negligence, or accident, or that has been
operated in any way contrary to the operating instructions as specified in the Operator’s Manual. The warranty does not apply
to any damage to the mower that is the result of improper maintenance, or to any mower or parts that have not been assembled or
installed as specified in the Operator’s Manual and Assembly Manual. The warranty does not cover any mower that has been altered or
modified, changing performance or durability. In addition, the warranty does not extend to repairs made necessary by normal wear, or
by the use of parts or accessories which, in the reasonable judgment of Scag, are either incompatible with the Scag mower or adversely
affect its operation, performance or durability.
Scag Power Equipment reserves the right to change or improve the design of any mower without assuming any obligation to
modify any mower previously manufactured. All other implied warranties are limited in duration to the two (2) year for commercial
use, three (3) years for non-commercial use or ninety (90) days for mowers used for rental purpose. Accordingly, any such implied
warranties including merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or otherwise, are disclaimed in their entirety after the expiration
of the appropriate two year or ninety day warranty period. Scag’s obligation under this warranty is strictly and exclusively limited to the
repair or replacement of defective parts and Scag does not assume or authorize anyone to assume for them any other obligation. Some
states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
Scag assumes no responsibility for incidental, consequential or other damages including, but not limited to, expense for gasoline,
expense of delivering the mower to an Authorized Scag Service Dealer and expense of returning it to the owner, mechanic’s travel time,
telephone or telegram charges, rental of a like product during the time warranty repairs are being performed, travel, loss or damage to
personal property, loss of revenue, loss of use of the mower, loss of time or inconvenience. Some states do not allow the exclusion or
limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you
specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
