looks great. i cant wait for an unbiased review of the machine. i assume that the only real change from the original quick mower is the drive system so i am sure it will be a great machine. the fuel tank looks rather small, other than that it looks like a great machine.

wow! it sure looks smaller than that. in that case i think its an ideal 36" mower. i will definitely look into these when i get ready for another 36". or i might even get the 44" to replace my 48" tthp

The mesh bag and halogen lights are standard equipment on the Dually models :cool2:
The caster wheels pins are "twist" pins.
I did a quick run with the mower on my lawn last night and the lights are working good. I can't speak of the cut yet since the deck was not adjusted (pretty high setting from the factory)
It seems to have plenty of power and you really needs the step saver (or the ability to walk real fast) to use it full speed.
Since I bought the landscaper Pro pack, I got the Accelerator grass catcher and mulch kit so I'll let everyone knows how it run when mulching or bagging.

I just cant get the hang of it with the turns, i end up swinging to wide and besides i only use my Quick on like 3 lawns and they are too small to even use the stepsaver on so ill sell it.

Very true...
The new step saver has caster wheels and cannot jack-knife when going backward. It allows the operator to stand in the same position behind the controls and have the Dually work like a stander. :dancing:

Alright, so like I said, I mowed a bit with this mower today to get a hang of it before using it on more "complex" accounts.
I used it on two yards. One with overgrown centipede with the mulch plate on and one with bermuda and weeds on soft, sandy soil.
So far, so good. Very nice cut on both yards (mower set at 2") but I had to replace the mulch plate by the discharge one one the sandy yard to prevent the sand from beating the deck too much.
I will post a full review in a few days but let me just say now that it is obvious that the new step saver is a must have with this mower. I found hard to back-up and turn while walking behind it. The step saver should make it a breeze though.
A nice feature is the max. speed setting control which allows the user to limit the travel of the wheel controls and prevent the mower from getting "away" when pushing the controls full forward.

With practice ..backing up and turning will become second nature. It will get "away" from ya unless you feel like jogging at full speed:weightlifter:

That new step saver will be out soon and then you will get to see the full potential of the machine.

This is what Gary wrote about the new Step Saver:
"It's designed to oscillate side-to-side and up/down so that it follows the terrain without effecting weight on the drive wheels or the deck. It's a two-caster design and keeps the operator positioned squarely behind the controls at all times. When in use, the machine behaves much like a Stander in that you can turn, back-up, spin-around or any other maneuver and stay in the same relative position with the mower. Backing up is easy and the rider cannot jack-knife. It's also designed to be easy on/off with no tools.

When the speed lock is maxxed-out at 7.2 MPH, Dually is way too fast for walking. The new Step-Saver gives folks the ability to fully exploit the speed of the mower."

Sorry, did not have time to take pics but I can tell you that the cut looks better than with my Honda HRX 217 which is kind of a reference in terms of cut quality.
The Dually leaves the same cut as the other Quick 36" because it has the exact same deck... :drinkup:

The Quick 36" has three blades which reduces the size of the deck. The deep tunnel construction allows good evacuation of the clippings even in wet conditions.
The 16 HP Kawi doesn't bog down easily on this mower either.

Ok fellas you have me pretty excited about one of these mowers. My cart is filled and information entered, only a push of a button to place the order. Here is the thing as I have discussed in another thread that is going no where.

I only need this mower for about 60-K worth of lawn per week. I'm sure the guys will use it more but with our avg lawn being 3-5K From a purely $$ point of view this purchase dosen't make much sense to me. To top it off my bigger properties are T & M accounts so doing them faster is not much of an advantage it does free me up to do other work and stay competitive. For the smaller lawns I have budgeted hours so again if i get the lawn done faster it frees me up to spend more time on the flowers or shrubs etc. I can't even use the mower in the summer because we cut our Bermuda so low 3/4"-1"

So while I want one of these I need some better reasoning than they are really good. My other bigger mower is a Ferris it is on one rig and my second rig only has 21's and reel mowers. C'mon talk me into one.

stevenf
08-27-2008, 12:57 AM
I have been looking for a better reason based on price. The question of " Why not pay $2,500.00 more for a bigger cutting rider.
So, The reason I will be getting one is because smaller lawns are more profitable, It wont break the bank, it is commercially built, and it weighs about 600+lbs less then a rider. This will also help with gas while towing. Another reason is its compact so I will be able to load up leaves,grass clipping, mulch, if need be......
I dont have one yet, just my reasons for getting one within a few months.

A dually with Step Saver is likely to reduce your fatigue and cutting time by 75% to 80% and will not rut small lawns even when wet.
It can also cut lawns as low as 1" and better than most 21".
That is enough to justify one, don't you think?
