If Only I Had the Cash

I was looking on ebay for a walkbehind and this caught my eye. I dream of running this mower. How many fo you guys would buy one of these if you had the cash?

to justify the cost and weight of the diesel you would have to be putting a lot of hours on the machine. That would be a great machine for lots of open areas, etc..

I would have to have a large complex or something to mow to make it worth while. I would not be good for my current accounts but maybe in the future.

That is a very nice mower and is very flashy with lots of bells and whistles but at only 8 MPH I'm find myself pushing hard on the sticks all day trying to get it to go faster.
