Has anyone seen or demonstrated the new 24 inch contour mower made by billy goat? My local dealer had a video on it and it looks pretty good but i'd like to see if anyone has had the opportunity to us it?

I doubt if anyone has used one since the unit just came out in November. I received a video and brochure on the unit from Billy Goat. It looks like a very promising machine for small residential areas and may be a great alternative to a 21". Its designated side discharge should be awesome in spring and its mulching capabilities should be good as well. In the video, it seems like you're flying in 3rd gear (much faster than any 21"), I have seen. The only drawback I have seen are: no bag as of yet and Billygoat's price is $1200 U.S. ($1700-1800 Canadian). Unless the speed is much faster than a 21", I think the price is a bit steep considering you are only moving to 24". More data is to be on Billygoat's website in a month or so.
