You must have no sloping terrain.

You're correct! I'm still getting accustomed to it because my old ones were always front wheel drive. Thinking about your comment makes sense as to why it would be better suited in the rear for slopes.

I'll be anxiously awaiting any info or pictures, too. Doesn't look like mowing season will end any time soon in Dallas, so I won't be in the position of buying a shiny new machine and not having a use for it.

Eh never been a big fan of MTDs products, especially in recent years.

Gravely has announced a new commercial 21. That looks interesting, waiting for pictures of that one.

unfortunately, I didn't get many pictures.. to focused on all the cool new stuff! check out my overview over in the general mowing forum: http://www.lawnsite.com/showpost.php...9&postcount=19

one thing that I think you guys will really like is the Husqvarna AWD 21" mower. looked to be very well made, im not sure of a price point on that.

on the new Honda mower, my main concern is how small the opening to the bag looks to be. I could see that getting plugged up a lot in wet and heavy stuff, even with the "microcut" mumbo jumbo.
