The Scag Turf Tiger II has many engine options ranging from 25HP to 35HP. They engines that are either air cooled or liquid cooled. The liquid cooled engines are phenomenal. They prevent any internal components of the engine from overheating even in the most strenuous applications.

Cut Quality:

The Scag Turf Tiger II has a great quality of cut. The Velocity Plus deck does a great job in most applications. The spindles on the mower can easily handle the large amount of power from the engine. The deck is sometimes prone to scalping grass compared to some of the competitors. However, overall the cut on this mower is definitely above average.


This mower is extremely durable. It is a rigid frame that is built for tons of wear and tear. Scag has been around a long time and has always been know for making reliable equipment.


The Turf Tiger II is not the most comfortable mower. It is a bit jarring in rough terrains. The comfort has improved with the addition of the suspension seat. However, it is still a fixed frame that doesn’t offer the best quality of ride.


This is a great looking mower with the signature Scag look. It stands out and has a mean looking stance. It is also now how a lot of the belts, pumps, etc are in easy to change/adjust areas. Most of these are toolless fixes, which is very nice for fixing mowers in the field.

The instrument panel is another added look. It tells you when/if there is anything wrong with your mower. It looks awesome and works very well.


This mower features the standard kill switch on the seat, seat belt, and roll bar.


These mowers range from about $11,000 – $14,500 depending on engine and deck size.
