from what I have seen, heard and discussed with them when we tried (demoed) them, they seemed to be on top of things fairly quickly.

what issues in particular are you having? is it the adjustment on the drive cable you are referring to?

Great mowers, I've demoed one before and the self propelled system is EXTREME!

I dont own one I was told by the dealer they had bad trannys tried going with cheaply made one's that was 2012 and then by gardener using one the tranny was bad. I think he said the drive would stick on. He said he was taking his back it was junk. That was midway through last season.

should I spend $1300 or a Ybravo 25? Looks like the Kawasaki engine is good, design of machine is good & well thought out. Has anyone purchased a 25 within the past 6 months?

regarding the Ybravo 25: I know they had Honda engines in the past, and the current engine is a Kawasaki. There is a post here about transmission problems, but its not clear if that was with the Honda or Kawasaki engine. They likely did some redesign with the replacement engine. I'm hopeful I can learn from someone thats used a new machine for a season or half-season?

ybravo 25 mower

The tranny problems were on the older models....(not that long ago, really!) In 2009 & before they had an issue with the tranny slipping. It has been a few years since they put that tranny in the 21 & 25.

It's expensive at $1400....is it worth it? I'd appreciate your assistance and advice....Thanks!

Jeff
