Wow, you better give your wife a big kiss for that one. Take some pix and show us your new toy. It beats the 12 pair of socks that I'm gonna get!
I wished that my wife would just be turned on about the mowing business as I am. :cry:

I have seen the literature on them, but what do you do about a dealer if the things goes down? And its still under warranty?

This was my first year and I also started off using a quick 36 samarai. They are good mowers.

i started with a lawn chief that i paid 200 for and a bagger that i made that looked like a rabbit cage.

Am getting ready to pull the trigger on a 36 Sami (or a new 32) as my first wb...sounds like a helluva mower!!

Any advantages/disadvantages to a 3 (12") blade setup vs a 2 (16") blade setup with regard to mulching? Seems like the blade tip speed would inherently be higher with the longer blades...is this a big deal, or just hype?

Does the aluminum bagger look heavy duty enough? What if it needs a repair...can't weld aluminum?
Which of the accessories are worth getting?

Thanks!

For sure the step-saver (velke) and I got my choice of gator blades, mulch kit or an engine service kit free, I chose the gator mulching blades.....i am still waiting to get it, due to x-mas delays with shipping, it will ship on 12/26.

The bagger is fine I used it all summer.The company that makes these baggers does a great job with the welds.

Advantages allows the mower to be a bit smaller and save some trailer space.
As far as mulching there is not a true mulching kit for the quick series mower but I haven't noticed any difference when I was using a friends 36" toro besides a trail on the right side.

I ran the bagger into a tree and it just bounced off. The welds on that thing are beautiful but I don have experience with welding aluminum or whatever you do to it.

If I were you I would get the landscaper pro pack. I just got some extra blades a few belts and the mulch kit with my super duty. When I look back I should have got it all at I time and save some $ on shipping.

I use the step-saver on all open areas and property's bigger that 1/4 acre. It saves your energy big time. I notices a saving of 10-15 minutes on 1/2 t0 1/3 acre property's

If I were you I would get the sam. If you have any more questions just ask.

Big C, jaybow, Matts lc...thank you gentlemen...good info there. Keep it coming!

Am still curious as to opinions on 3 shorter blades vs 2 longer blades for all aspects of cut quality re: side discharge and mulching? How far do the clippings travel in side-discharge mode?

Big C

I'll let you know the details as soon as I get it...it should be delivered the first week of Jan.
