You will like that mower.

I have the 61/32 vanguard - and it's considerably better than my Exmark ever was.

It stripes better, moves better, smaller in length than the Exmark was, and with the bagging unit...I haven't had it bog down yet. Even with the wettest grass/leaves.

At that price, I also would have picked up another unit.

So when it comes to tracks in the centipede, "Reddens" leaves "Red'uns"?
Groan.....sorry, I couldn't resist.

Wow. Ha. Part of my yard and and all f my neighbors yard is centipede, and if I mow with my ztr(snapper) or his (scag Tt) it turns the blades of grass tinted red for about a week. His wife loves to mow so she does it on here troybuilt rider that is much lighter, and never has that problem. Does anyone know what I am referring to?

Yes. This is more than likely due to compacted soil.

6800 is retail here in ohio. My dealer quoted me a s200x for 6800 last week. I wouldn't call it a steal, but it's a good price.
