    Thats a nice machine but I bet you paid a lot for it. Did you buy it new or used? I see in my JD catalog its got a 64 hp engine but it doesn't say what brand it is. Is it a JD or a Yanmar engine?

    it is a 2001 non turbocharged yanmar. net hp 48-51. the 64 hp one is turboed. I get it pretty reasonable. it cut 11.5 feet with all three wing down. the thing that is cool about the wam is you can mower with just the front or one of the wing or all the wing and the front deck. i can't wait april to come so i can go out and test her out. i also have a 1984 jd 430(hence 430 boy) which use to be my primary cutting breast but the wam has taking it place. it is my trimming tractor now. :blob3:
