It's so funny that you mentioned Grasshoppers because on my nightly Clist hunt... Look what I found!

What is everybody's opinion on the price?

Are you seeing the hourmeter?

SRT8.... I didn't know that you ran the Turf Tigers....

Do you run the collection systems on them?

There is a guy that I am doing some sub work for and he has one and the cut is just amazing....

I have always been a Scag fan though... I run Scag walk behinds...

I just think that the velocity has such a sweet cut and the machine is suprisingly gentle for how big it is....

We used to have a couple Turf Tigers but got rid of them after like 3000 hours or so. I have Cheetahs now. We dont catch any grass, strictly mulch.

It's got a glare on it, but it looks like 72 hrs.

Tis an old one huh?

I spent last night checking out the Hopper website and videos...

They look awesome for sure but I think TT's are just the cat's meow.

Getting a 62 side discharge for my girl might work for now, just gotta keep it at weekly...

My buddy had a Hopper diesel with the collection system. Nice machine, cut good, collected good, but it felt like driving a VW around the lawn.

60"
They are both really good mowers. But i gotta be honest......i don't mow to much lol. When i did use them i was mowing flat open fields. My guys arent to picky, as long as the mower starts everytime and is in good working condition they are happy. Cant really go wrong with either mower.
