Just curious as to where you demo'd one of these and the size of the mower that you demo'd....I would like to follow up with the dealer to maybe go over these issues and set-up another demo for you because I think you might be refering to another older, non-X-TREME mower........!

You could get a 48". If thats overkill you must be mowing some small yards.

Doug, I see on your website that their is a briggs engine available on the X-treme. Is it a commercial grade Vanguard or a residential grade Intek or ELS?

Also I read where the hydro system only has a 3 quart oil capacity so does it have an oil cooler or fans on the hydro pumps? If not then I would be concerned about that oil heating up on a hot summer day of continuous use. Also is the oil synthetic?

Sorry for all the questions.

Questions....that's what I am hear for!!

The Briggs engine is a twin ELS.....It has been a good engine for us. It does have a 1 year Commercial Warranty and it does cost less than the alternative Kawasaki......We ideally selected that engine for these reasons and to attract the larger home owner lawns.....

The hydraulic oil is synthetic and we don't need a larger reservoir for cooling. Every lawnmower application that we offer must first be approved by the pump and wheel motor manufacturer

Thanks!
