SCAG Cheetah II 61″


The Scag Cheetah is the fastest and most comfortable cat in the Scag family.

Clocking in at speeds up to 16 mph and featuring a coil-over shock suspension system, the Cheetah is truly a remarkable zero-turn mower.

The Operator Suspension System isolates the operator platform via a coil-over shock and provides additional comfort via rubber iso-mounts. This innovative, adjustable system soaks up the bumps and keeps things simple with only three moving parts.

The ZT-5400 transaxles have two-speeds, Low Range (up to 12MPH) and High Range (up to 16MPH). The large 15 gallon fuel capacity (dual tanks) keeps you in the field cutting grass. Fill up in the morning and cut all day long.

From the heavy-duty, Tri-Plate Velocity Plus™ side discharge cutter decks and the 61″ Velocity Plus™ Rear Discharge Decks, to the various high-power engine options, there’s a Cheetah that will increase your productivity and leave your competition in the dust!

Contact your local Scag dealer for a field demonstration today. The Cheetah is pure Scag quality with ultra-fast ground speeds, a soft ride and a cut that is “Simply the Best.” The Scag Cheetah equals productivity.

The Cheetah II™ is ultra-strong and built for long life. It has a wide mower stance and extra-low center of gravity for ultimate stability and a replaceable front caster-wheel weldment.

Speeds Up To 16 MPH!

Two-speed ZT-5400 transaxle lets you choose either Low Range to travel up to 12 mph or High Range for up to 16 mph. Internal 16 cc pumps and 21 cc motors help provide speed, power and torque. The transaxle’s design greatly reduces hoses and possible leak points.

Velocity Plus Cutter Decks

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™ cutter deck is an outstanding performer and delivers beautiful results.

The Velocity™ Plus Cutter Deck provides 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.

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, paired with the Turbo Baffle, enhances discharge for even clipping dispersal.

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.
