Technical Features On New SCAG Ride-Ons

Technical Features On New SCAG Ride-Ons: Major technical features have been introduced with the latest SCAG Ride-Ons, including the introduction of the “Tiger Eye” control panel. This is noticeably superior to the previous ones. The sales literature shows an eleven-point list of the features:

Real-time monitoring of the following systems (model dependent) :

  • Hourmeter
  • Volt Meter / Charging System
  • Engine Water Temperature (liquid-cooled models)
  • Engine Oil Pressure (on select models)
  • Glow Plug Indicator (diesel models)
  • Air Filter Condition
  • Control Lever Circuit
  • PTO Circuit
  • Parking Brake Circuit
  • Seat Switch Circuit
  • Safety Interlock Module

Technical Features On New SCAG Ride-Ons

To put this into more everyday benefits: The operator has a far greater amount of information immediately to hand, and there are pre-programmed, therefore automatic, service requirement warnings that come up, as well other alerts.

Also, the hot weather in 2018 led to greater than normal dust ingress risk – but the Tiger Eye has an air filter monitor, an excellent warning to prevent engine damage.

Another technical advantage from SCAG is in the Diesel / Petrol debate. The continued improvement of the EFi systems on various engines over the years has culminated in a system that can give same level of fuel efficiency as the diesels have done, leading to more effective HP levels on petrol engines and greater cutting power.
