    Hi All:

    I am in the market for one of the bad boy mowers. I have checked out Gravely, Great Dane, and the Dixie Choppers. I am finding out that most of the mowers are somewhat comparable in prices. Per your professional experiences, which is the best mower for the money? I need a mower that will chew up anywhere from 1 acre to 5 acre lots.

    Is there any truth to decks supported with chains only bend after time.

    I appreciate your time and input.

    Regards,

    Aaron

    I think I know what you mean... just slow down and then give it a quick boost of speed as you push down and it's no problem :D
    Can't afford the Tiger now LOL

    BHB, why did you put that third caster wheel on the front? That's gonna leave an extra line down the middle.

    Actually it doesn't. I put it on there for less scalping especially when turning and it's height adjustable. I keep it up a spacer or two for normal mowing but on rough terrain I can put it down even with the others if I want. Look at the pics in the "It's starting" thread for pics of just mowing with it.
