    I have used one for five years (975 hours). Good power, good cut. I haven't noticed any rutting.

    I remember the dealer trying to push one on me several years ago when I was shopping for a WB. I have since seen several low low hr units cheap. Other than being ugly I haven't heard much in the way about their performance.

    i don't mind ugly, but cheap priced yes. found two with 450 hours asking 1600-1800 each, really is a back up incase my scag craps out and would use it for the over grown lawns too, but you cant find a walk behind with a 27hp and i loved my 50 dixie chopper i did have
