Has anyone used the Billy Goat Contour mower.
I have. Used it last year works good self-propelled high wheel
24" cut.
What I would like to have but don't think anyone makes is a 24"
cut walk behind hydro.

The honda HRC216HXA Hydrostatic transmission. Not what I was thinking Price higher than the Billy Goat. The Billy Goat has a 3 speed transmission. 1st is all I use unless I want to ran with it.

Macaw, i am looking at the billy goat contour mower, also looking at the yazoo walk behind. I would appreciate any coments you have about the billy goat, i can't find a dealer anywhere that has one that i can look at. i need a mower between my scag ztr and a small push mower for a particular account (sloping hilsides )
Thanks;

Its a good mower had trouble with intertubes they brake at the
value stem put better tube in works just fine. If you are mowing hillsides that are steep you would be better off with a walk behind you have much more control The billy goat is just a push
mower with a good self-propelled transmission.

Here is what happen to one of the wheels from mowing on a steep bank this took about 3 mouths to do and they don't replace it under warranty. No problems the rest of the year
will know more on how good it is after this year.
