36″ Walk Behind Lawn Mower with 14HP Kawasaki Engine & Advantage Deck

In 1986, with the introduction of Scag’s first belt-drive Walk Behind mower, a revolution was started in the commercial mower industry.

A fundamental element of any commercial cutter fleet, the SW belt-drive walk-behind continues to prove its worth through its simple design and efficient operation.

Twin power belts maximize drive performance in all weather conditions. With the spring assisted EZ Grip hand controls and the reliable Peerless five-speed drive system, you can expect trouble free, productive performance.

The 5-speed transmission features 9-spline coupler construction for added durability and longevity. And with the exclusive Advantage™ and Velocity Plus™ cutter decks, you get the perfect cut, the first time, every time.


  • Five-speed Peerless transmission for ground speeds from 2 to 6 mph. Transmission features 9 spline couplers for increased durability
  • Convenient dash panel puts the controls at your fingertips, including key switch, throttle, cutter deck engagement switch and optional hour meter
  • Heavy gauge handlebars are adjustable to provide additional comfort for taller operators. Handlebars have three height settings and fit a wide variety of operators
  • Redesigned handlebars allow for more comfortable operation, with reduced handlebar diameter and adjusted steering lever angle
  • Twin hand controls with spring assisted EZ-GRIP allows for smooth, precise responsiveness. EZ-GRIP reduces the amount of hand force required to operate the mower for increased operator comfort
  • Operator presence controls are vinyl-dipped and designed for operator comfort
  • Large 6 gallon, rust-free fuel tank keeps you in the field cutting. This tank design is 20% larger than tanks on other mower brands
  • Molded-in cup holder provides added operator convenience and comfort
  • Extra durable front caster arms are designed to handle rough environments
  • Heavy-duty Flat-Free caster wheels with quick pin removal for easy maintenance and cutting height adjustments. Semi-pneumatic tire design virtually eliminates downtime and expense resulting from flat front tires
  • Ogura PTO clutch brake engages the cutter blades. Adjustable airgap ensures long component life
  • Twin power drive belts supply solid smooth power to the drive wheels, reducing slippage in wet conditions
  • “Split-Steel” pulley design is stronger than cast iron or stamped pulley designs. They are precision matched and lightweight for reduced inertia and decreased wear on the cutter deck drive system
  • High-quality bearings and bearing debris guard on idler pulleys ensure long, reliable service
  • Marbain cutter blades stay sharp longer for reduced maintenance
  • Heavy-duty blade drive spindles provide unbeatable performance
  • Padded, ergonomically shaped shift lever makes shifting gears simple
  • Double stacked roller bearings in cutter deck idler pulley adds to reliability
