I really wish i didnt have to bag this one...unfortunately I still have to use the 22 Its such a beautiful lawn and would look awesome if I could use the new mower! This is the only lawn I have where the guy requires it to be bagged. Just cant justify spending 3-500 bucks on a bagger for the ferris for 1 lawn. Oh well...http://www.lawnsite.com/attachment.p...1&d=1337604153

Looking back at the pictures noticed that there was VERY little drive belt on the outboard blade spindle pulley. Receipe for slippage under load???

Don't underestimate the force needed to turn that unit and to keep it straight on slopes. That litte better company gave up on their single for a good reason...it sucks.

After reading enough comments of this nature, I decided to go the hydro route over a belt drive. I mow hills and slopes constantly, so I was looking to get a unit that would make my life a little easier. I ended up with the Ferris 36" dual hydro and I'm SO happy with how it handles crossing steep hills.

Looks NICE! how much?

we have 1334 pacer simplicity"s" and a 1534... nice machines, i'd always have loved a v-twin engine though since the single cylinders are always so damn loud compared to the twins..even with that, they've always had plenty of power.

I don't see anything in the pictures that I couldn't mow with a 48 inch mower. Just curious why you'd go with a 32 incher. Gates? I would not have the patience to mow that one yard with a 21 incher.

What happened in the horseshoe pit? Is it not a part of the yard?
