How fast can you mow with that pinhole of a discharge chute?

WTH? I question how long this company will last? That looks to be the dumbest idea I have seen in a long time. How is it useful?

There already kevlar belts and long life bearings. Nothing special about that.

It's been up on the web a time or two... around Expo's and such.

I think it goes like 18 or 25 mph.

I don't see the point of all that myself. We already have a TON of mowers that will run faster than you can cut with them. But hey... that crap sells for whatever reason.

WTF? Am I missing something or do you really have to put your feet right on the top of the deck. No thanks.

It looks pretty simple to make, first you take a go-cart frame, put some bigger wheels on, slap a mower deck underneath, put a handle bar on instead of a steering wheel and bam!! you got a Mowhawk mower!

You might get to the other side of yard quicker, but then you'll waste time repacking the braking chute before coming back!

I'm going to guess that they cut the grass in the pictures w/ a mowhawk mower. You can be the judge of cut quality...

My question is - How could you change cutting heights w/ the bulky deck?

The deck has got to have gearboxes and timed blades too.

Maybe it's not as bad as we all assume it to be.
But it sure looks like the dumbest idea I've seen for a ZTR.

Yeh, I saw this at the 2006 Expo. Heard it running also. Sounds pretty powerful and yes the estimated speed was approximately 25 mph. All it needs is NASCAR sponsorship and a team driver !! LOL

Talk about the turf tearing potential of this one... Hey, ya know I got some PITA customers I should dump. Think a burn out over the front lawn would do the trick ??! :laugh:

I was thinking the same thing..." can I wreck your lawn? ":dizzy:

How much does that ugly beast weigh?

I too saw this at the expo last year. The one thing that did seem as it would be usefull to me was how it had a low center of gravity and wide stance. We mow a lot of hills and it looked like it would hold the hill pretty good. It also did look like it was built very tough (heavy). But like someone else already said, they couldn't answer a lot of questions.

I bet you set the cutting height by adjusting the wheelie bars on the back!

I think what cracks me up the most is the RCI Racing seat that even still has the slots for the racing harness. That and the motorcycle looking handlebars. :laugh:

It reminds me of the old fiberglass 3 wheelers that used to be ou there. You know, the ones that used to have the square knobbied tires. If nothing else, I'd put a set of paddles on it and take it to the dunes! :)
