I got rid of the walk behind in 2005. The belt drive did not pull the seats well, they made the mower lose some turning radius, and reverse was out of the question. I pretty much stopped using the sit down sulky and walked every yard for the reasons I just stated.

Bailey, what do they call that Turf Tiger now? It used to say 29 efi on the air filter canister. How is it labeled now? 26.5 efi? 749 efi??

You're going to love that machine - excellent fuel economy and plenty of power for everyday mowing.

I saw a guy yesterday that was mowing with a 61" Turf Tiger 27 hp Kohler. I stopped to talk with him because he had a brand new 52" V-Ride on his trailer and I'm curious as to what people think of the standers. Just wanted to get his opinion. As I was talking with him, I noticed that the Turf Tiger he was on was old. l stepped back and saw that the hour meter read 2,669. It still looked like it could go for another thousand.

BTW, I had kind of forgotten about this thread. I'll have to take some pics of my 72" Cheetah and post 'em on here.
