    This 32 hp Vanguard is amazing, I watched the tach and never saw it drop over a couple of hundred rpm's. This signal grass was so big I had to go over it three times to get it cut and I went slow but faster than you would think.

    Wow! Thats impressive. Do you guys ever wonder how much hp mowers will have in another 5-10 years? The last 10 years we have seen it basically double, from 16-20hp in the mid 90's, to 32+hp now!

    Looks very impressive pp. Have you had a chance to test it on a good quality lawn yet?

    I think it was brought in as forage for cattle. You can look at it here in this link, it grows very, very fast.

    I have some stuff in my back pasture that looks similar to that but not quite as tall. RG
