What did you upgrade to? I have been considering a trimstar. Is that not the way to go, in your opinion?
The mower is sold. I did not upgrade to anything I just did not have a use for the mower anymore. I do all rural lawns and a lot of farm houses (3,4,5 acre yards). The mower worked great on slopes and small lawns with tight quarters. I loved the mower just did not need it anymore.
