Scag STC52V-22FX 52" Zero-Turn Tiger Cat Riding Mower with 22HP Kawasaki Engine & Velocity Deck - Closeout

With roaring power and agile maneuverability, the compact Scag Tiger Cat ® is a force all its own. Where productivity is essential, the Tiger Cat delivers with ease, capable of handling more than 24 acres per day.

Powerful engines and a tough dual pump and wheel motor drive system ensure dependable performance, year after year. Equipped with a Velocity Plus™ cutter deck, this mower will tame the tallest grass and leave it looking smooth and professionally manicured.

A full-body welded steel frame will not yield to tough terrain, while the low center-of-gravity keeps the Tiger Cat stable. The replaceable front caster extension protects the main frame against impact damage and features tapered roller bearings in the caster yoke pivots for long, dependable life.

Comfort is maximized with either an adjustable suspension seat or a soft-ride seat. Adjustable steering levers, arm rests and a big foot platform reduce operator fatigue.

"Split-Steel" Pulleys

"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.

10cc Hydraulic Pumps

10cc hydraulic pumps provide smooth and reliable power. Built in pressure relief valves reduce internal pressure spikes and add to hydraulic component life.

Aluminized Engine Exhaust

Aluminized engine exhaust reduces back pressure, increases performance, and lasts longer than conventional steel construction.

Compact Mower Size

Compact mower size enables you to take the Tiger Cat into tight places. The Tiger Cat occupies less space on your trailer without sacrificing performance.

Custom-Cut Baffle

Custom-Cut Baffle allows you to customize the cutter deck to your individual cutting conditions.

Deck Leveling Adjustment Bracket

Deck leveling adjustment bracket allows for easy in-the-field deck leveling adjustment.

Digital Hour Meter

Digital hour meter displays maintenance reminders to help ensure that routine service is completed.

Dual Fuel Tanks

Dual fuel tanks (7 gallons total) keep you in the field cutting grass. Fuel tanks feature extra large, angled filler necks for easy filling. Molded-in cup holder allows for added operator convenience and comfort.

Easy Oil Changes

Engine oil drain makes maintenance clean and easy.

Easy to Adjust Cutting Heights

Easily adjust cutting heights from the seat with the convenient foot pedal. Wide range of adjustment from 1" to 5" in 1/4" increments.

Extra-Large Foot Plate Area

The foot plate area is extra-large for improved operator comfort and easier mounting and dismounting of the mower.

Foldable Rollover Protection System

Foldable Rollover Protection System (ROPS) is standard equipment and easily fits into enclosed trailers. ROPS provides additional operator safety. Retractable seatbelts for added convenience.

Fully-Welded Unitized Steel Main Frame

Fully-welded unitized steel main frame design is stronger than "bolt-together" frame designs. Front caster extension is replaceable in the event of an impact.

Heavy-Duty Blade Drive Spindles

Heavy-duty blade drive spindles provide reliable, top-notch performance day in and day out.

Heavy-Duty Hydraulic Drive System

Heavy-duty hydraulic drive system includes dual 10cc pumps and large capacity wheel motors for reliable, zero turn maneuverability.

High Quality Electrical Components

High quality electrical components such as switches, wiring, sealed fuses and harness looms are used throughout the Scag mower line for dependable service.

High-Quality Bearings

High-quality bearings and bearing debris guard on idler pulleys ensure long, reliable service.

Interlocked Parking Brake System

Interlocked parking brake system prevents movement while trailering or when parked on inclines. The mower cannot be driven when the brake is applied. This prevents premature brake wear.

Large Drive Tires

Large drive tires ensure solid traction and easy curb climbing. Large pneumatic front caster tires for a smoother ride.

Marbain Cutter Blades

Marbain cutter blades stay sharp longer for reduced maintenance.

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.

Ogura GT3.5 PTO Clutch Brake

Ogura GT3.5 PTO clutch brake has 250 ft. lbs. of torque for easy blade engagements and solid holding power in heavy cutting conditions. Adjustable air gap ensures long component life.

Operator Friendly Instrument Panel

Operator friendly instrument panel located just to the left of the operator. It includes an ammeter, ignition switch, mower engagement switch, and separate choke and throttle controls (hour meter located toward the rear of the mower).

Productivity at a Maximum

Up to 10 MPH forward and 4.5 MPH reverse speeds keep productivity at a maximum.

Replaceable Trim Side Wear Pad

Replaceable trim side wear pad on the cutter deck helps protect landscape and the edge of the cutter deck from wear and tear.

Smooth Operation and Minimal Fatigue

Steering dampers are designed and located for smooth operation and minimal fatigue.

Spring-Loaded Idler Arms

Spring-loaded idler arms effortlessly keep belts in constant adjustment for maximum life and minimum maintenance.

Standard-Style Steering Controls

Standard-style steering controls are ergonomically-shaped and padded for easy control and maximum operator comfort.

Tapered Roller Bearings

Tapered roller bearings are utilized in the front caster wheels and in the caster pivots for durability and reduced maintenance. These bearings can handle a 50% larger load than standard ball bearings. They are well suited to handle the daily pounding the front caster wheels receive.

User-Friendly Design

User-friendly design allows quick access to the engine and filters, for easy maintenance.
