Talk about sticking your head in the sand ... politics is part of everything !! Anyway, why did you bother resurrecting a thread that's over a year old ??

I have had a 48" belt drive Red hawk for 5 years and it still runs fine. It kind of reminds me of the older scag units.

I also have a Dixon ZTR , which I think was made in the US, but who knows anymore.

I bought a world lawn mower #28 inch deck a few months ago and it was stolen. I needed a larger machine than a 21 that would be productive. The mower did a great job.
Yes it was not a total commercial mower. This mower was less than half the cost of a better quick dually 32. I replaced it with the Quick. I just looking forward to American doing me proud over china.

So which mower leaves the nicest finish cut for small lawns, the 21", 28" or the 32" ?

The short time I had the 28" it cut great. Mulching was very good on weekly lawns. Took about 2 minutes to change from side discharge to mulch. It save me about 20% mow time. I would have used it as my primary mower.
I have not used the 32" mowing yet. I bought it on the year end sale. I went this route to have a back-up for the 21" and 42" walker.

Since someone else necroposted....
My first commercial mower was a 98 model Bunton belt drive 36 with a 13HP Kohler (after 11 years it finally threw a rod in Sept while doing duty at my church). I donated it to the church in 2008.

That mower was a heavy brute that ran great. I wanted another 36 and found a 2007 model Redhawk with less than 20 hours on it for under $1000. The thing is, had you painted it green and slapped a Bunton sticker on it, I would have never known the difference. It has a Kohler Pro 15 on it.

So far it has performed without fail and cuts very well. I would consider a hydro version without hesitation. The only flaw I have found is that it will sometime jump the left traction belt when backing it off the trailer. Can't find a cause, and it doesn't happen every time.

As my accounts grow, it (and my toro 48 wb) will be moved to backup status and I will only run hydros.

Google "redhawk" and find out how many LCOs are praising them.
