I've debated getting something like that as well. Hate dragging out ramps, blocks of wood, etc. Does the unit you have seem strong enough and seem like it will last?

I think this thing has passed my standards for a well built product

Another update: Scag is half way done put in the new starter, anti scalps, gas shock, and G6 Gators and is currently in the shop getting the parking brake fixed with a new motor sump gasket. Also scored a huge cleanup and flower bed reno, the goal is to cut out the pachysandra in squares that she has in her flower beds and move it to a eroding part of the yard to solve that issue also she requested i move about 25 yds of mulch.... I can see the scag being paid off in full with this job!

What do you think of the SRM-230 Echo? Our SRM-3100 is to the point where it requires service of some type almost every time we have to use it (only used on our 2 acre property). So I was looking at a SRM-230, SRM-266, or a T242 Shindaiwa. If anybody has experience with any of these models, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Everything looks great, and I'm sure the SCAG is going to boost productivity. My brother just bought a used Tiger Cat 61'' as an upgrade from a Craftsman LT-1000 42'' for his 2 acre property.
