My old mower has been causing me more problems than good so I decided it was time for an upgrade! 60" with 28hp Kawasaki, What do you think. I got it this morning and cut all afternoon. I cut my mowing time down by 10-15 min per lawn!(1/2 to 1 acre) It held hills much better than my old cub cadet and surprisingly tore turf less.I also included a picture of the sides me and my dad made. I was going to get some nice signs from AMW but they never got back to me even after me calling to check a few times.

The deck just fell off the mower and got bent in the processes. My trailer and storage shed just got real small real quick lol. Enjoy

For my purpose/situation it is good. I am solo with for the most part with bigger properties. I got the Commander version right before they came out with the 9hp XL version. I was happy with the design but the 6.5Hp lacked power. I clogged the power vac pickup twice testing. The 9hp option has 77% more suction so i will be good there. I will start a thread on it when I get it.

New mower looks good.you need to fix the cub and use it as a back up or for small yards.thats what we do. we have the same cub rzt 50 with 259 hrs on it only problem was the cable that holds deck up broke.eazy fix.we try not to use it but we run 2 60 inch ztr's and in some small yards they wont fit. good luck.

yes this winter I will fix it and use it as a backup or I may sell it. Im not sure because right now storage is tight. I need to store my quick 36 in the garage with all the seed I got in the shed.

The cables holding the deck up snaped twice for me. The second time I got fed up and replaced it with chains like commercial mowers.

No the cub is out of warranty as of 6/20/07. I will get it fixed this winter and clean up everything.

Thats heading in the right direction for sure. I've been debating over picking up a new Toro like that but I'm prolly going to be waiting until spring as nothing much is growing around here.

sweet mower dude I hope it makes you good money and I know it will not fail on you like that cub. Just one question if you don't mind me asking, did you pay cash or finance. If so what are the monthly payments on a mower like that?

I payed cash. The sticker price was $8500. A truck will have to wait until next year. :cry:

Nice buy. That is a great machine. We just broke 700 hrs on one of ours with little problems. You will notice every 350 or so hours the little ball in the pin to adjust the deck height will fall out and you have to get a new one from toro for about $15. Other than that repetitive problem, they are really great machines.

I have already had to replace that little pin with the ball in it two times and i only have 140 hrs on mine. Wierd!
