No i didnt see it on ebay. Hope everything goes great with your mower. I was worried about the rain as well on my way back, but it held off luckily. My buddy has a viking that we use and it by far is the best wb i have driven. It is very light, fast, manuverable, and has a great cut. I would have rather bought a viking but again this deal was too good. The vikings can go on any slope and are great for those steep hills with fences at the bottom.

Ya i am OCD about my equipment. I have had plenty of good oppertunities to buy dirt cheap mowers and none of them were in really good shape so i declined.

Good luck to you to this season as well.

Well the floating deck sounds like it is better but i have used both machines before and i prefer the fixed. The cut on the viking was very even but the hp's seemed like the height was different all over the yard? maybe soemthing was wrong with the one i had used in the past but i know it wasnt that great. I did get a chance to take mine out and test it and i do seem to like it alot better than my past experiences.

I would have loved to take a beer but i think you would have gotten in trouble, I am only seventeen. I like wilson alot. I didnt go to down town wilson but we met off of I-95 at aunt ? pancake house that was closed down. I was there for about 30 minutes and headed back.

I didnt realize you were a young'in...haha good old "closed down pancake house on I95"...there are about 10 of those in NC...were biscuit people, we dont eat no stinkin pancakes. Glad your happy with the mower, you got it from a northern part of NC so there is no need to worry about it being "sand blasted" from mowing bermuda at 1/2 an inch in sandy soils...around Raleigh/Wilson its mostly Fescue. Enjoy!

yeah that thing looks 10 times better all cleaned up.

Oh and I found for cleaning lawnmowers and stuff use some bleach in a spray bottle it removes all the junk thats on the deck so fast, and makes the wheels bright white. Any greasy areas use some citrus degreaser.
