Eastman Walk behind mowers

My local lawn shop is thinking about carry this lawn of mowers.
He says that they have a 20 in Commercial with a 6 horse Kaw. that is suppose to be great at bagging in all kinds of weather.

He has one that I will be taking out on demo this Friday. He is looking for feed back from us local guys.

If anyone out there uses this brand of mower please seend some replies as to what your thoughts are.

Thanks in advace for your replies.

Have a great season.
Mike

I used it. It is a beast. Impressive and should be a real threat to the Honda and Toros if the factory support equals the performance. We took a Suzuki powered toro out on a tough spring grass lawn that was high / wet and the Eastman trudged through with a perfect cut and all the Toro could do was go in 1st gear without stalling and plugged up even with the high lift blade. The Eastman has a lot of suction! I am waiting to see the Blade Clutch versoin and will buy then, I am very impressed. Just looking at it will sell you! I am going to investigate more. Want to know about parts support, and mulching.
