Same here. If you know where to get the Turf Master or even a Time Master with the Kawi engine let me know the store number and address I'll call and pick one up today. Not saying I doubt you, perhaps they somehow got a last years model TM, or we're even trying it in the store to see if it would sell. Either way let me know where to pick it up at.
And on a serious note, if you go back and they got one for $800. you better pick it up. I'm on the market for one right now, and I'm certainly going with the Kaw. engine. Not only will the engine hold up much longer, but it seems to be build a lot more heavy duty. I think the wheel set-up might be different also.
