I looked atthem today for the first time, very impressed, btw. I wondered what HP was to.LOL I am not saying I am buying exmark, but the number show me something, they have thicker decks, bigger spindles and it seems where ever I go everyone, for the most part says they have the best machine... I can say one thing the sales guy at the exmark place actually educated me about the product and showed it to me, toro guy just wrote stuff down, Hustler did a good job and the Scag dealer I saw wanted to agrue with me over whether my current mower was a commercial grade mower, which is really is, that dealer LOST all buisness I will ever have for him. I am actually going to the exmark open house here in Indy on Friday and demo me an X, can't wait.

I just bought a 52" this year. I usually run 72" xp's. I love the 52". I am very loyal, I bought 2 other brand mowers before and neither lasted a year. I will never ever change again.

Just got the 52" HP. I think the HP stands for "Hydro Plaining" across the greens. This thing is fast. All the hype I've been reading about this mower I just had to get one. Grass isn't growing much yet and the ground is soaked, but I have to tell ya I'm impressed how this thing goes up a hill. I know it says not to exceed a 15 degree hill, but I couldn't resist trying the hill here at the house. It'll make your ankles hurt walking horizontally. But I went straight up it with the HP. It was a bit scary near the top and started getting light in the front end, but it went right up. Decidede to find the slope of the hill and measured out at 25 degrees. Gotta make sure to keep that seatbelt tight. Praying for some warmer temps and the sun to shine here.

IMHO the HP stands for 'Half Pint'.. A small mower with an attitude not a wide area behemoth but a 'small dog' that runs with and sometimes around the pack definitely does not 'Stay on the Porch'..

Hey, maybe it's different in Canada, but as a small part time LCO, I don't need to ask "what's the best way to clean grass from my mower blades". Again, I just assumed after now seeing the vast and varied amount of machinery you own, you already knew the best method, not to mention other questions you post about similar subjects a large LCO would know.
I hope this doesn't an arguement, since it's just an observation after the many new pictures you've been posting.
Thanks,

Hey Doc Pete I'm not crazy about the idea of people bashing one another but, and please hear me out on this. I too am starting to smell for lack of a better word a rat. It seems that Mr.UL & Mr.Fareway have some if not all of the same mower ie: the one 21" with the lift bar on the front, An eXmark TTHP or 2 ect... So Fareway most if not all of us have posted a pic on LS why not you?

P.S. Have a good one John & Doc Pete :) :waving:

As I originally said, I just wonder why all of us enjoy sharing photos of our stuff, trucks trialers, business cards and ourselves, except Fareway. Gees, he's so proud to offer pictures of his stable of equipment, but not his photo or a picture of his business. Sorry, but with all his many photos doesn't it strike you odd out of all of them, "none" have a business name. Sorry, jealousy doesn't enter into it.

I can answer the mini Lazer question. I got mine off of e-Bay John got his from a dealer. And if your after a mini Lazer for yourself go to e-Bay and search for eXmark you should beable to find a good deal on one.

Fareway dude chill out & leave people the h*ll alone.Doc Pete did nothing to you why are you ragging on him? What's your deal?

I'm a former owner of a company that mowed lawns and did some landscaping. They where five separate company's that i bought in my 10 years of doing this. I do love riding fuel injected lazers and riding behind Turf tracers, A great tan is my life's work and listening to music and riding a lazer is a great way of doing it. I know alot about emarks stuff because i owned a lot of there mowers and have had a good re-pour with there people.

For getting alot of stuff, Just ask your dealer.

By 3 point turn do you mean turniing at the end of a run, stopping and then reversing and then going forward again?

Do you have the name of the original thread, my curiosity is killing me.

metrohp48, if the Doc is willing to honor his original challenge of $100 for the video of a z turn at walking speed I will provide it. Unfortunately, when pressed he attemped to weasel out of honoring his offer.

No doubt you already know if it can be done or not. No doubt you've had months to try it. So, Fareway ol'buddy, which is it?

(I thought Doc raised the bet, and you wanted the Foumites to decide if it was legit or not, before showing us)

That I have to see.

BobR
04-17-2004, 08:18 AM
That is about the only advantage of a belt drive walk behind and even then you have to develop the knack of whipping the machine around without some scuffing.

And here I thought you'd jump at the chance to embarass me in front of the home crowd. As they say, that's priceless, so who needs money to prove it??? Just take your little camcorder, and video it.......

Next, you can explain to us how Meg mo's have more "suction" but "less blowout"......Again, that's impossible. To have more suction requires more air. And, more incoming air requires more outgoing air.... Hence, more blowout.

Fareway Lawncare
04-17-2004, 08:50 AM
metrohp, I wanted forum members to decide if the video was legit..Doc refused to honor his offer. If the offer is still good I will provide the video.

More suction because the knives have good sail...less blowout because they don't drop as low as doubles in the deck.

Blade height in the machine doesn't affect blowout unless the deck is way too short and then you have the problem anyway. Also, if the blades are up in the deck, your cut will suffer because the grass must be bend over by the front of the deck and doesn't spring back fast enough. This is one reason why a brushog has the front open, to let the high grass get cut without bending it over.
However, if it works for you that's good.

Blade height does effect blowout, I add the mulch blade to My honda 21 [zero lift] which only adds 1/8 in blade height and my blowout is increased.

I assume you added the mulch kit, too???? If you added just the blade without the kit, "WHY"????
Now just take a minute and ask yourself can 1/8" make a difference??? It's probably the blade. FWIW, I "did" play with blade height in the deck and on my Hustler, it made no difference.
Try this, take the stock blade and put a 1/8" washer under it and try it.

eXmark will soon have a blowout baffle that lowers the flow control baffle 1/2" for their Walks...this should help allot for leaf blow-out. Currently I use rubber baseboard material attached w/metal screws to the front of the decks but it gets destroyed quicky.

Fareway Lawncare
04-17-2004, 10:42 AM
Dishboy, the rubber baseboard material might work on your Honda...here it is attached to a Proline...works great for doubles.

Doc Pete;
No this is without the mulch Kit. I use the blade as a spacer to match cutting heights with my 36in wb. It also inables me to mulch if the lawn is thin enough and bag by installing honda's plug or pulling it, thereby saving time.
