quick 36 noise level

I have heard that quick mowers are very loud! Is this true, and what makes them louder than other walk behinds?

Your in NC, why not just go check them out for yourself. Any 15/16 HP engine combined that many cutting inches is going to make some noise. I haven't ran many other WBs but I can tell a Walker is louder by far.

I've heard some complaints about them but never that one. Ear plugs will fix it.

My Dixie is loud. I don't really notice it unless I get next to a building. My finger goes in my ear until I move away.
