SCAG CHEETAH - OPERATOR SUSPENSION SYSTEM

The Cheetah's Operator Suspension System isolates the operator platform via a coil-over shock and the seat via rubber iso-mounts.

The entire operator platform (seat and foot plate) are suspended to deliver a smooth ride, with only three moving parts.

Smart: Unlike more complicated, conventional suspension systems, there are no moving parts on the drive and caster wheels, no moving counter levers that link the suspension system to the cutter deck to combat scalping. This smart suspension design focuses on the area directly around the operator while maintaining a durable, rigid, double-tube frame design for long machine life.

The Cheetah Operator Suspension System eliminates the possibility of the suspension causing a quality of cut issue and is superior to "cushioned" caster forks which can also affect quality of cut. Smart.

Simple: With only three moving parts, including the shock, pivot points are at a minimum. Fewer pivot points means fewer maintenance items/ wear points. The suspension adjustment lever simply changes the angle of the shock, providing a firmer or softer ride. Simple.

Spacious: The Cheetah features a large, all steel foot platform with an extruded tread pattern. Unlike flat steel or a rubber pad, the extruded tread pattern allows dirt and debris to fall through the plate while providing solid footing, even when wet. The adjustable bolstered seat, folding armrests and Quick-Fit control levers provide a comfortable environment for a wide range of operators. Stretch out your legs and MOW!

OPERATOR SUSPENSION FEATURES

Coil-Over Shock

A high-quality coil-over shock soaks up the bumps to give the operator a smooth ride, even at high ground speeds (up to 16mph).

Rubber Iso-Mounts

Four (4) rubber iso-mounts on the seat plate help to absorb side to side motion and jarring which can fatigue an operator over time.

Ultra-Comfortable

In addition to the platform, the ultra-comfortable, bolstered seat with armrests and Quick-Fit adjustable handles give the operator even more comfort (61" and 72" Cheetah seat shown in picture).

5 Suspension Settings

There are five (5) suspension settings that allow the operator to customize the ride from firm to soft. This adjustment can easily be made while in the seat.

 

 

HYDRO-GEAR ZT5400 DRIVE SYSTEM

The Cheetah's heavy-duty drive system delivers speed, reliability and power.

Dual Hydro-Gear ZT-5400 transaxles propel the Cheetah to speeds up to 16MPH. Designed exclusively for the tough commercial market, the ZT-5400 powertrain delivers unmatched power and durability.

  • Two Speed transaxles - Highly productive and built to last. Speed is controlled by fluid volume (swash plate angle), not gearing, so shifting on the fly is easy to do and harmless to the system. Scroll down for more info. Top speeds up to 16MPH.
  • 16cc Internal Pumps - Large fluid displacement pumps keep the Cheetah moving fast!
  • 21cc Internal Motors - Big power and torque for the drive wheels.
  • 1.375” Taper Axles - Heavy-duty axles for long, reliable life.
  • Planetary Gear Reduction - Delivers maximum torque and durability
  • 9" Cooling Fans - Keeps the oil temps at a safe level for long system life.
  • Heavy-duty shafts, bearings and gears - For long, reliable life.
  • Internal Wet Brakes - Internal, maintenance free parking brake.
  • 1” Input Shafts - Large enough to handle high horsepower input from today's big engines.
  • Charge Pumps - Keep the main pumps charged with an ample oil supply for cooler and quieter operation.
  • Oil Filters - Replaceable cartridge filtration system keeps the oil clean for long system life.

Taking a Closer Look at the Two-Speed Function

Examining the internals of the ZT-5400 transaxles clearly shows the simple, solid and rugged design.

The steering levers control the variable swash plate on the pump (see steering lever input in the illustration), which controls forward and reverse movement, just like any other pump and wheel motor system.

The 2-speed lever changes the swash plate angle on the motor, (see 2-speed shift lever input in the illustration) allowing for two fixed speed ranges. There are no actual "gears" that "shift" so shifting on the fly is easy to do and harmless to the system. The planetary gear reduction delivers solid torque to the drive wheels.

 

VELOCITY PLUS™ CUTTER DECKS

Nothing Cuts Grass Better. Nothing.

Scag cutter decks have always given our competition a serious case of deck envy. Many try to duplicate the performance, but none can match it. The Velocity Plus™ deck is an outstanding performer and delivers beautiful results.

The Velocity Plus™ Cutter Deck delivers the unmatched power, precision, and performance professionals demand. This revolutionary deck design delivers high-velocity discharge, plus a beautiful manicured cut, even at faster ground speeds. A redesigned cutting chamber and massive discharge opening provide even greater cutting performance with maximum clipping dispersal in any conditions.

The Velocity Plus™ Cutter Deck is available in 48", 52", 61" and 72" widths on Scag Walk Behinds, Stand-On mowers, and Zero Turn Riders.

Strength - Scag's tough cutter blade spindles and Tri-Plate construction ensure solid performance and long life. A replaceable trim-side wear pad protects deck from damage.

Productivity - An extra-large discharge opening, along with the redesigned Turbo Baffle, enhance discharge for even clipping dispersal. The need for double cutting is virtually eliminated.

Flexibility - The Velocity Plus™ cuts everything from fine grasses to tough weeds. The Custom-Cut™ Front Baffle System allows you to customize the deck to your individual conditions for even more productivity and higher performance.

 

Velocity Plus™ Details

  • Up to nine (9) anti-scalp rollers in seven (7) different, strategic locations around the cutter deck provide maximum turf protection.
  • Front baffle chamber stands the grass up before being cut by the blades. This enables the Velocity Plus™ deck to cut taller grasses faster and better than any other cutter deck on the market.
  • The Velocity Plus™ deck design delivers superior clipping dispersal.
  • The Turbo Baffle* increases discharge velocity, throwing grass clippings and debris farther away from the cutter deck. This promotes a more even distribution of clippings, reducing "clumping" and "wind rowing".
  • The strongest cutter blade spindles in the industry featuring cast iron housings and dual tapered roller bearings. Nobody builds a more durable, long-lasting, reliable cutter deck spindle.
  • Super rigid, Tri-Plate* deck construction results in a nearly 1/2" thick (.485") steel cutter deck top, which is the strongest in the industry. Why would you settle for a single layer of steel?
  • We are so confident in the strength of this cutter deck, we stand behind it with a 3-year "no crack" warranty. Turf Tiger mowers feature an additional steel reinforcement welded to the inside-front edge of the cutter deck. This helps prevent damage from impacts, etc. (61" deck utilizes a 10 gauge deck top, 7 gauge deck skirts, a 7 gauge top support plate and 11 gauge plate welded inside the deck.)
  • Custom-Cut™ Baffle System allows you to customize the cutter deck baffling to your specific conditions. Nobody else gives you this kind of flexibility.
  • Offset front caster wheels (where needed) keep the caster tires on the right side of the spindles. This allows the cutter blade to lift up grass that may have been laid down by the caster tire.
  • Replaceable trim-side wear pad protects the deck and landscaping from scraping and impact damage.
  • A variety of cutter blade styles are available to match your specific cutting conditions and needs.
  • More productivity. Cut more grass in less time!
  • Less double cutting, even in the toughest grass conditions!
  • One deck can cut everything from fine grasses to tough weeds!
  • Highly flexible discharge chute will not dent and is easy on the landscape.
  • 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.
  • * Turbo Baffle and Tri-Plate not included on all models.
  • Scag Velocity Plus Cutter Decks

 

VELOCITY PLUS™ A TO Z

Discharge Clippings Far and Wide.

The green arrows display the unrestricted, straight discharge path the Velocity Plus Deck delivers. This allows the grass clippings to be discharged farther away from the deck and in a wider pattern.

The blue arrows show how the Turbo Baffle and discharge blade fan the grass outward for a more even dispersal pattern.

Velocity Plus™ A to Z

V Deck callouts

A - Turbo-Baffle increases discharge velocity and prevents cut grass from reentering the deck cutting cycle. (Not included on all models; optional on walk-behind mowers.)
B - Front deck chamber allows grass to stand up before coming in contact with the cutter blade. This minimizes uncut grass and provides a beautiful cut in even the toughest grass.
C - Patented adjustable front "Custom-Cut" baffle allows the user to customize their deck to optimize performance in virtually any cutting conditions, whether side discharging, mulching, or bagging.


D - Extra-wide discharge opening allows grass to be dispersed far and wide to minimize clumping and windrowing.
E - Tough Scag spindles are made with cast-iron housings and tapered roller bearings for long life and dependable service.
F - Marbain cutter blades are extra-strong to keep a sharp edge longer, yet lightweight to absorb as little engine horsepower as possible, retaining ultra-high blade tip speeds.
G - The leading edge of the cutter deck is reinforced internally to increase strength while not adding deck length or reducing trimming ability.
H - Up to 9 anti-scalp wheels in 7 different locations provide the ultimate in turf protection.
I - One or two (depending on model), 12" long, rear-mounted anti-scalp rollers protect the rear edge of the deck from damage when going over curbs and when trailering. Rear rollers also provide excellent rear-side turf protection from scalping.
J - Trim-side wear pad protects the cutter deck and landscaping from scraping and impact damage. Pad can easily be replaced with no welding or cutting involved.
K - The corners of the Velocity Plus cutter deck are reinforced internally for added strength and to eliminate exterior plates that can reduce trimming ability and potentially damage the landscape.
L - Tri-Plate cutter deck utilizes three layers of steel for unmatched strength around the spindle mounting area of the deck. Top plate ties all spindles together while the bottom plate is integral to the cutter deck baffling for even more structural integrity.
M - Reinforcement prevents damage to rear baffle
N - Front scalp rollers are height adjustable and the rollers are captured on both sides for increased resistance to bending on impact.
O - Flexible discharge chute is easy on landscape and will not dent like steel
P - Split-steel pulleys are stronger than cast or stamped pulleys. They are lighter weight than cast pulleys and are balanced for reduced deck drive system wear and vibration.
Q - Deep and wide idler pulleys keep belt stress to a minimum for increased life. Super thick, laser-cut idler arms provide maximum strength and reliability. No punched out, light-duty, thin metal/plastic stuff here....this is a SCAG.
R - Deck leveling adjustment bracket makes fine tuning the deck level quick and easy.
S - Spring-loaded belt systems require no adjustment or maintenance, while keeping perfect tension on the belts for long life.
T - Idler pulley features a debris cover for the bearings which helps keep moisture and foreign material away from the bearing to increase life.
U - Deck support bracket runs all the way to the front edge of the deck for increased rigidity
V - Deck is pre-drilled at the factory for Hurricane Mulch Systems, as well as the mulch plate, for convenience.
W - Grease fittings for spindles are top-mounted for easy access.
X - Easy wing-nut retaining system for belt covers makes removal simple and tool-free.
Y - Idler arm pivots utilize sealed bearings for smooth operation and long life.
Z - Cutter blade retaining bolt travels through the center of the spindle shaft. The through-bolt design also allows you to change blades without altering the proper preload (150 ft. lbs.) on the tapered roller bearings.

SYSTEM'S MONITORED

 

CAST-IRON BLADE DRIVE SPINDLES

Toughest, Best Built Spindle. Period.

Cutter blade drive spindles are a crucial component to mower performance. The average blade spindle rotates over 1.8 MILLION times in eight hours of cutting . That's 9 million times per week! Can you afford to have anything but the BEST blade drive spindles turning your cutter blades? Absolutely not!

Scag cast-iron spindle housings* are cast in Wisconsin, and precision machined at Scag with state of the art machining centers to ensure a perfect fit for the tapered roller bearings. Every Scag cast-iron spindle is assembled, greased and torqued by hand at the Scag factory.

This is the best performing, most reliable spindle in the commercial industry...hands down. We have been using this same rock-solid design for many years and proudly stand behind them with a 3-year limited warranty.

Scag Approved Spindle Greases:

  • Mobilgrease XHP™ 222
  • Exxon Mobil Ronex MP
  • Exxon Mobil Unirex EP2

 

Cast-Iron Spindle Details

  1. Bearings - Scag spindles utilize a matched set of tapered roller bearings. Tapered roller bearings have 50% more load capacity than ball bearings. The taper angles allow the bearing to handle a combination of radial and thrust loads, unlike a ball bearing.
  2. Housing - Cast iron spindle housing. Increased shock load strength over aluminum housings. Super strong to take the everyday abuses of mowing. In 2004, Scag spindle housings were upgraded to an even thicker mounting flange, increasing strength by 163%!
  3. Hardened spindle shaft 1-1/8" diameter. Extra large diameter, hardened spindle shaft provides superior strength. Key groove is cut into shaft for solid pulley mounting.
  4. Grease fitting. Top-mounted for quick and easy greasing. No need to crawl under the cutter deck.
  5. Grease relief valve . Special relief poppet valve ensures that "over-greasing" and damaging a seal is impossible, even with powered grease guns. The valve is spring loaded to prevent debris from entering the housing, unlike "weep holes".
  6. Blade bolt mounting hole. Cutter blade retaining bolt travels through the center of the shaft. Under extreme impact, only the bolt may need to be replaced, not the entire spindle assembly. The thru-bolt design also allows you to change blades without altering the proper preload (150 ft. lbs.) on the tapered roller bearings.

*The Freedom Z, Freedom Z Pro, Liberty Z, SWZT and SFW walk-behind use a sealed, aluminum spindle.

 

 



SCAG CANISTER AIR FILTRATION

Don't let the small size of a canister air filter fool you!

Most of the canister designs featured on Scag mowers have close to 150% more filtering surface than standard air filters. That means fewer filter changes and saved maintenance time and cost. The canister is located above the engine where it will draw cleaner, cooler air.

Here are a few benefits of the canister air filter system:

  • More filtering surface than standard air filters
  • Located above the engine to draw cool, clean air
  • Equipped with port for "Filter Minder" (select models only)
  • Compact design
  • Fewer filter changes equals saved maintenance time and cost
  • Dust ejection port
  • Easy, no tools filter removal

 

SCAG PTO CLUTCH BRAKES

Scag utilizes only ultra high quality Ogura PTO clutch brakes for smooth blade engagements and fast blade stops.

Other manufacturers opt for less expensive, smaller capacity, non-adjustable, "disposable" clutches. Not Scag. Scag PTO clutch brakes are manufactured by Ogura, the world's best manufacturer of electromagnetic clutches.

All Ogura clutches feature an adjustable air-gap. What does that mean to you? It means that when most clutches are worn out and must be replaced at a significant cost to YOU, the Ogura clutch can be easily adjusted to bring it back into specification (your Scag dealer can perform this adjustment).

These clutches also feature industry leading torque values (the holding power that links the engine to the cutter deck drive system) to ensure solid drive to the cutter deck and no slipping in heavy conditions.

 

OGURA CLUTCH FEATURES:

Solid forged rotor - A one piece solid forged rotor means no chance of internal parts separation. The rotors also have an even wall thickness around the coil which gives optimum flux distribution, maximizing torque.

High temperature, long life grease - All models include our special long life grease which has shown a significant improvement in life over other standard high temp greases.

Adjustable air-gap - When the rotor and armature have worn away, a simple adjustment can be made to bring the clutch back into specification.

High temperature epoxy coil - To help prevent failure from both vibration and outside contaminants, all coils are sealed in the coil shell with a high temperature epoxy coating.

Forged machined pulley - All models use a heavy duty machined pulley. A stronger pulley resists damage due to abusive environments and will last longer than stamped designs.
