Well i think that's how there self propelled system works. If you wanna go faster pull the handle farther, slower just let up on it...


What i wanna know is PRICE$$$$ That things a beast and i think i'm wanting one and don't even need it...

First, it needs a three-speed transmission similar to the Proline.

Second, it really needs a little more power than the FJ180v can deliver. It's a nice engine on a 21" mower, and I am sure it will work ok. But trying to mulch thick St Augustine is going to be a struggle. Unfortunately I don't think there is a better choice.

well if it was like the time master I had it mulched so fine anything with any moister would turn to paste then gum up the whole mower. I wouldnt buy one till you heard from someone cutting fescue or green weeds. Everytime I would cut as soon as I would let off the blade clutch the blades would stop and drop a 10 lb ball of grass pulp. You can keep that thing. Im lucky my dealer took it back

This looks like a remake of the exmark metro 26", only with a bit of a bigger deck and a side discharge chute. The 6 hp kawasaki engine isn't going to be strong enough to handle the weight of that machine. I wonder how much that thing weighs? The timemaster is about 135 lbs.

Looks pretty tough for a walk behind...I wonder how it'll stack up compared to the new Toro 30" Turfmaster.

Seriously , you tried to mulch green weeds. I don't care what brand you mulch with , never mulch weeds they will make a mess everytime. Don't blame the mower yyou should be side discharging.
