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) :
- 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
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.
