That thing is a beast, what are your plans if you get one? Use it for mowing and broom/snow blower?

Yeah. We would get the 72" deck for mowing. They offer a 100" deck but it isn't realistic with the trees around here.

We may get 2 units and so we would get one with a broom and one with a snowblower. We have 2 gators with plows so we wouldn't need to get plows for these.

If we were to get 2 of these, we could get rid of 2 older mowers and 2 dedicated broom units. So we could reduce the fleet by 2. That would be nice for me.

is that thing always running on 6 wheels? or is the middle on there just to support the tracks? if its always on 6, it seems like it could have the potential to tear up the ground a lot. looks like a blast to drive though!

When it is a mower it is like any other zero turn. Two rear wheels and two front on the deck. The front 4 wheels on the current setup stay with the cab when it is taken off. And yes, it does tear up the grass. It also is a pain to turn on dry cement. The salesman said it needs the snow for "lubrication".

It looks just like a regular zero turn mower when the tracks are removed. The extra wheels are added only for the tracks.

Bingo! And when you convert back to the mower, you replace the drive wheel with a larger one too. The one that is on with the winter conversion is tiny.
