Bout 10k I use it in about 2-3 residential yards but if you can't master it and watch your turns don't use it. That sucka can tear a yard up though. It's all about been experience.

Yea i spent countless hours mowing on a farm with a lazer when i was younger and even more hours in a skid loader. I feel like i have a pretty good handle on them but I'm sure there is always something new to learn.

Here you go Krazy as much as i want to think it its just not going to be in the budget for me to get one this year.

You spend 10K on a mower you use twice a week? Or you use it more than that on commercial or municipal properties as well?
