The KAI should perform well for you. Good luck with it, can't wait to see stripes in front of some of those houses you cut.:cool:

they (huskey) call it the ETS easy.touch.system. i think toro makes the t-bar. its a little different style.

Good choice going with the Kai from Kawi, I have a customer with two Husky mowers one with the Kohler and the other with the Kawi, he told me a couple of weeks ago that he wished he could take the one with the Kohler back and get another Kawi. Easier to start, quieter running and better fuel consumption were some of the benefits he pointed out.

How do you like the ETS so far? I've always thought the ETS looked very comfortable. The dealer I go through sells Exmark and Husqvarna but I chose the Exmark. I would like to try a similar mower from Husqvarna here in few years or so.

its very comfortable to me. but this is my first W/B so i cant compare it to anything. reverse seems sorta stiff but no big deal, dont use it alot. if i had an exmark dealer close i probably would have went with one although they are quite a bit more $. this was 3399.00 and a 36 inch exmark viking was pushing 5 grand when i priced them at my closest dealer(2 1/2 hrs. away).

5 grand for a Viking!!! I can get one around here for the price of that Husqvarna. Anyways good choice.

Got any pics of it in your trailer? I would like to see how you made everything fit in your trailer. I am looking at trailers for next season and wondering how to fit a 36" and a 21" in a 5 by 10 trailer like yours. Thanks in advance.

well metro, Everything doesnt fit now. i had to take out some of my shelves. but the 21 fits in behind the 36 at an angle, just barely. not the most ideal set up but it will work for now. i will get some pictures for you today if it stops raining.

oh yeah, i just noticed that you said your going to get a trailer. i would highly, highly suggest a 6x10 at least so they can fit side by side. errr... i mean, do you want to but my nice 5x10 enclosed wells cargo trailer?

Thanks

i bought the trailer used(in perfect shape) for$1000, i had a terrible time finding a used enclosed trailer. i was just about to buy a brand new one when i spotted this one in a guys driveway near my brothers house(same town as me) i just went to his door and asked to look at it because i wanted to get one similar. the trailer wasnt for sale. but he said "why dont you buy this one, i dont use it anymore". so i bought it right then and there. i will try and get pictures this weekend. i put the huskey in first with honda commercial behind it kinda at an angle.

Are you serious about selling it? Let me see those pics and then I will think about the trailer. What is the headroom inside?

thesargent

sorry, i was just joking about selling it right now. maybe next year though. the head room is about 5 feet, kinda low. but i dont spend any time in there anyways. im very pleased with enclosed trailer. its nice having everything locked up and dry. i just posted pictures of the inside in a new thread, check em out.

Ok then. I need a trailer soon. Im having a hard time finding a small used enclosed trailer for sale locally.

thesargent

yes, i agree, they are very tough to find used. people snatch them up real quick.

i know this is an old thread but I'd like to know how it cuts cause I am thinking about getting a pair of the 36"s but I havent seen the cut from that deck I only have the tunnel ram. So hows the cut and stripes? a pic would be great.

well BMFD92 - the cut is really good and i was impressed how well it stripes. i have a new digital camera ordered as we speak so i can get some pictures real soon of some stripes. so far i am very happy with this machine, and would recommend them, this one is the dual hydro by the way and i paid 3300.00 for it.
