 Scag Tiger Cub problem

Gentlemen,
I just had my new 48" Tiger Cub Z turn delivered. After the rep left I tokk it around the yard a few times before it got too dark. I noticed two things right off. The machine has a hard time engaging the PTO without stalling, and the Kohler engine at full throtle runs high/low almost constantly. What I mean is the engine revs high and then throtles back a bit, then high again. Having absolutley no experience with Scag or Kohler engines I am just wandering if this is normal, or do I need to talk to the dealer. After spending so much on a mower its not a good feeling.
Randy

The engines normally have a throttle governor. It is likely not set up correctly.
The other question would be the gas. If it is too low of octane it will cause the same throttle surge.

Give the engine time to break in and some things might go away. The electric pto clutch is the greatest tool for implementing safety items but it does nearly double the horsepower requirements for running a deck.
