I know but I hate(with a passion) mowing large back yards with a 32" walk behind. I wish I could find a good sulky for it. Hey lilmowinman you need to post some pics of the cut.

Im to cheap to buy one, especially when I have a welder, I bought a homemade one off ebay a few years ago and have not been impressed at all, I currently have it on my 48" encore which I leave at my farm. I think I will try to build a swivel style sulky soon. Sorry to hijack the thread!!!

Here's the cut... The stripes aren't deep because i didn't cut it at the right height. Ill get some tonight hopefully. And yes i know my lines aren't straight... i'm still getting used to it.

Nice equipment. :)

With practice you'll be able to get all of those leaves up!

Yeah. Im sure as you all know the transaxles are a LOT more sensative than pump and wheel motor. I'll figure it out.

Never see Encore around here, or anywhere for that matter. I guess they are still doing their thing quietly.

Looks like a cute mower, lol.

As to the post about not having anti scalp wheels... It's a 34" mower... There's no need for them, nor really anywhere to put them. Most 36" Walkbehinds don't have anti scalp wheels...

Now, about that last picture you posted... What the heck is a fire hydrant and a parking meter doing in that backyard!?

Haha that has brought up so much discussion in other threads. My dad was a firemen and some guy had hit it so my dad got it for free and we tapped into our waterline. My mom uses it to water the stuuf behind the pool. And the parking meter... idk the story on that lol

thats not true at all a transaxle is much smoother than a pump and wheel motor combo. pump and wheel motor combo is way more sensitive and a lot harder to get the hang of.

Nice mower. A guy in my neighborhood has one and it does a great job mulching. It's just like a phazer so it should be great.
On transaxles, I find it the opposite, the pump combo seems to be more sensitive than the separate pump and wheel motors.

Well then it just might be my mower. It is brand new so i guess they have to break in right?

How in the heck did he manage to hook a water line to that hydrant, he would need like 17 adapters!!! I found an old hydrant layin on the ground once, after making sure no from the city was gonna pick it up I had a friend help me load in my car, you wouldnt believe how much those things weigh!!!!!!!!

What we did was we ran water line to it then went from line to a pvc pipe with a valve sitting horizontaly that went out the side. then on the top part that you would use a wrench for we made it spin easy and we cut i notch in the side that was inside the hydrant itself so that when we lowered the hydrant onto it, the valve handle fit inside it allowing us to turn it on and off
