Thanks, Tony

How far from Huntsville are you? Great looking machine there.

It is a single hydro, similar to the Quick mowers. It will literally turn on a dime, but the wheels will not turn in opposite directions at the same time like a dual. The sulkey wouldn't work too well in a zero-turn anyway. :)

Thanks! I used to go to classes at UAH and work at the Rocket Center. Sparkman Drive was 50 minutes from my house. I guess the I-65 exit is about 40 minutes from me. Let me know if you want to check it out!

Very nice. I have an older school version. It is just like this minus the pretty paint and those extra handle controls. What are they for (they are the most forward controls)?

I have two more questions.

1. For those that use a sulky (mine is just like this one), how do you like them? I find that when I ride mine it creates zig-zags in the lawn stripes because of divots and dips etc. It looks like a drunk guy had his good eye closed while he mowed it. So I choose to hoof it and some of my lawns are huge and take me 1+ hours walking it.

2. Is there a mulching cap or cover or kit available for this machine? I'd prefer to be able to close or install a cover for some lawns.

The thin top levers are the blade safeties. If you let go and the blades are engaged, the mower cuts off. The levers under the handles are the brake levers. The curved controls on the inside of the handles are the thumb controls. Your thumbs rest in the curves of these controls and make it go forward, backward and turn. No shifting is required.

1. I have some lawns that are bumpy, and I just slow down to keep from messing up my lines. The only time I have to get off the sulkey is usually on a crazy slope.

2. I have found mulching covers and baggers that fit it sold online. I don't remember where. It is probably best, as far as $ goes, to make a cover or have a friend make one if you can.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

If you need a great backyard or neighborhood mower, this is it. You could spend this much on a 21" or you can get a 36" you can ride behind!

I'm dropping the price from $1250 to $1150 FIRM. :dizzy:

PM me or give me a call at 256-685-0070 or 901-428-7753.
