First with a timed blade 28" and now offering a timed blade 32"

If anybody has ever operated a timed blade walk , the advantages are huge in QOC and mulching ability. Perhaps the big manufactures will stop letting bean counters dictate mower design when they start loosing market share. I see a new 32" timed mower to join my homemade 42" timed deck walk on my trailer this year.

Are these the new cheaper mowers everyone is talking about in the other thread. I looked at the site and they actually offer a 60" ZTR that goes the norm 10MPH. If they are that much cheaper I would buy a few only if the dealer support is there. I think cut quality may be an issues compard to an Exmark or Scag.

Your right, a staggered blade design can't compete with the QOC of timed blade mowers for many reasons. By design the Skagg or Exmark will be inferior. A staggered blade deck will cut at different heights on uneven ground because it has too. This is a design defect that becomes a big issue at short cutting heights or on dense turf that is not pool table level.

I must be blind. Where does it talk about the timed blades? Curious how they went about it.

If you open their parts manuals you can see the diagrams.

So what happens when you hit a object with a mower blade? The timing belt jumps and blades hit each other and parts get distroyed? Blades moving as fast as they do cause a lot of damage quick.

I don't care who makes it, how great a cut it is, if it ain't a hydro, it blows.

i worked on an ariens tractor mower recently that had a timed 42" deck. Looks like a very similar setup. I think the drive belt is designed to slip before the timing belt. not 100% sure on that but it seems like the logical way to have it. Kinda neat though to see some more use of timed decks.

We ran the Troy Bilt with timed blades for several years and didn't tear up anything. It was a mulch only deck and gave a good cut on souther grasses.

There are still way too many deficiencies in these mowers to make them worth buying, even at the price they charge.

1: 3 speed tranny
2: 13" drive tires
3: 8" caster tires
4: 2 gallon gas tank
5: 3.55 MPH top speed
6: Chinese steel

Handle bars look really weak.

When several people start a thread about an off brand mower and how "awsome" it is, It makes it pretty obvious that they're connected to the machine.

"look out scag and exmark" -give me a break! I wouldn't pay crap for a belt drive from china.

Also, the most cost effective system of syncing the blades is with a chain and sprocket system like on your truck, but it would have to be horizontal like your current belt setup so when it streches it would come off and rip stuff up. IMHO:confused:

World Lawn headed to the shop already

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Had my World Lawn 36 for about a week now and yesterday it broke . The brake holder lever fell off and I couldnt find the washer holding it on. Also when I would push it up a hill blue smoke would be coming out of the exhaust pipe. I will be taking it to the dealer Monday to have it fixed.
