2019 SCAG Power Equipment Liberty Z 61"
Scag Liberty Z opinions? Thread starter Mayberry Start date Feb 10, Mayberry Forum Newbie. Joined Feb 10, Threads 2 Messages 4. I'm in the market for a new mower and I'm replacing a 10 yr old Craftsman rider. I need a good, quality mower for reside tial use. I live in Georgia, so warm climate. Bermuda sodded lawn, pretty flat So, I don't need a full commercial mower. I've run across the "prosumer" range of zero turns and they look igcse ict worksheets pdf be constructed pretty well.
I just want something that I'm not going to have to throw away and replace in years. I really like the Scag Liberty Z. Does anyone have an opinion on this mower? I've found some reviews and posts, but most are from right after the model came out. Anyone maybe have an update after running one for a year or two?
The mower has a Kohler Pro engine, Hydros, 48" fabricated deck. Most comparable mowers are very similar. A few others have the Kawasaki FR series engine instead of the Kohler.
Any opinion on which of these engines is better? I know Kawasaki makes a great motor, but the FR series seems to have mixed reviews.
Appreciate any opinions, reviews, etc. I'm really ready to just buy a mower and get ready for mowing season. Thanks in advance.See our updated in-store policy.

Pretty much narrowed to these two, and looking for thoughts to help me make the decision.
Things I like about the CC is that it has a serviceable trans, grease points on the spindles and two gas tanks. Both the Scag and CC would have the kawi engine. What are your thoughts? Pretty flat. Live in Georgia. Would have to contend with sweetgum tree balls and twigs that fal from trees will gather the bigger limbs.

I bought my last one about 5 years ago. I have had nothing but hatred for this mower since the first day. In fact the local CC dealer just closed up because sales have been so poor. I don't mean to bash on a brand but CC has really disappointed me. I recently bought a Kubota Z to replace it. Today may be the first chance for me to try it out. Other nearby dealers just don't seem to have as good of a service department based on my direct experience with them or what I've read in reviews.
Seems like a lot of my research is telling me that too. Would love to hear more from you on what you think about it and why you selected it over the others. Plus, what were the others you considered? What are thoughts on the Ferris s? Reviews seem pretty good and I like the independent suspension it has.
Leaves a better cut than the professional landscapers with Walkers leave around the neighborhood. Climbs my slopes like a mountain goat. Has the lowest center of gravity of most zero turns. All three have the Kawi engines, and the fab decks - so all pretty similar. Been watching a bunch of YouTube reviews and reading a lot. If you have extended down time will you have a backup mower or will the dealer you use give you a loaner?
The husky MZT series is also close to your price range. It has all the workings of a entry level commercial mower good serviceable hydros s kawi fs series engine or Briggs, Cast iron grease-able spindles, grease-able front forks, fabricated deck.
