Has anyone had any experience with the Sutech? I am thinking of replacing a Troy-Bilt widecut 33 with a WB of approx. same size but much better built. Local dealer suggests Sutech. I sure don't want something I have to ship to China for parts or service!! I appreciate any feedback.

Do a search there are some posts on it . I had one and hated it. I sold it. Some guys here liked them . I'd say two thirds hated the thing. Try before you buy.

Spend a little more (around 1k) and get a true commercial mower. There are a bunch of manufactures of 32" walkbehinds that will mow circles around either a Sutech or Troybuilt and outlast them by far.

have one.

dealer is great fixes all problems, and you will have problems.

compared to real WB, it is a pain to use, and not nearly as durable. as well we use probably 12 litres of gas a day, dont know how many gallons that is- that seems excessive to me for the size of the mower.

i couldn't even begin to list the parts that have broke on it. having said all this, it is fairly fast, i think the cut is decent, and it is cheap. i likely wouldn't buy one again, but i've also made worse purchases.

if you decide to buy, i've been told the kawasaki engine is superior to the briggs

I got to go with everyone else on this one. Spend a few more bucks on the comercial brands. I have one of the Craftsman versions of your troy Built. If I replace it I will go with a 32 or 36" comercial. A few bucks more will be worth it.

Spend the extra grand and get a true commercial mower. Exmark, Toro, Bobcat, Scag, etc. etc. are all decent mowers in 32" or 36"
If you have to bag any grass you'll be glad you spent the extra money, that Stealth bagger set-up is really poor. :) ;) :) ED

Thanks for all the feed back. I was sceptical of this mower but wanted others opinions. Will definitely stay away from it.
