The all-new Liberty Z is the first Scag lawn mower designed specifically for the needs of our residential customers. However, this does not mean we took shortcuts and rolled out a “disposable” mower. On the contrary, the Liberty Z boasts many of the same heavy-duty features you have come to expect from Scag. From its strong tubular steel frame, to its fully-fabricated cutter deck, the Liberty Z is built to provide you with years of reliable and productive service. In addition, the outstanding quality-of-cut will make your yard the envy of the neighborhood.
