Saturday I found a 2008 Scag tiger Cub 61" deck 25hp Kohler, with blown head gaskets. I was able to score this and both gaskets for $1650
, awesome shape dealer was just wanted to unload it to busy to run through the shop. Anyway checked on trade in value and low trade in is $4800 so I got a little room to play.
Did not take long had the gaskets replaced and mowed my whole yard. Now that is where the problem comes in the the left side will go backwards cold for about a minute than only has forward, however going forward has no problem going up a very steep bank or chewing the grass on take off, so I would say the wheel motor is probably fine, and I would believe the hydro is also good, that more than likely it is the valving inside the hydro pump. Anyone ever have one of these apart? or do I need to take the pump to a hydro shop?
Thanks for any info, Eric
