I call the Scag Cheetah II the 'exotic car' of the Scag lineup, not just because it's the fastest large lawn mower in the Scag fleet, but because it's body style and design look amazing. The Scag Cheetah II is a badass large zero turn lawn mower because of it's Hydro-Gear ZT-5400 Transaxles, and the fact that it can be outfitted with a 37 HP Vanguard or 36 HP Kawasaki Engine, making it cruise at speeds up to 16 MPH! The faster the mower, the faster the cutting, and the faster you finish the job! The Scag Cheetah II is available with a 52" or 61" velocity deck, just like the Turf Tiger.
