My wife's cousin bought one last year. Looks like a real animal. The list price was like $18,000 and he got it for like $15,000 and a bunch of extra parts too. I guess you would have to have a lot of work to justify buying that.

They are nice machines and they have 4 wheel independent suspension for a smooth ride. In order for you to justify buying that you'd need to have enough jobs to run that mower all day every day.

It is a beast. I demoed the prototype a couple of years ago for a week or so.

I demoed one last year. Love that diesel engine, but the thing weighs almost 1 ton! The ride was real smooth!

impressive machine indeed...I just can't imagine running a 2100lb machine over very many of my properties...the results would be horrendous.
