    I don't know a whole lot about them other than they were by far my favorite mowers at the louisville expo that I demo'd.

    I drove one at the Expo in Louisville. They seemed like a well built mower but that is all I know about them. We do not have anybody that sells them around here.

    I have demoed one also have the demoed the montana which is the same thing. Things that I kind of liked were

    1. Simple design

    Things I did not like are

    1. Poor cut
    2. hydro's are winey. This may be diffrent this year!
    3. Poor hill side performance
    4. too rough of a ride.
    5. Sticks are uncomfortable
    6. Poor dealer All show no service dealership!

    I have a friend who bought one because of the price. It is a 72" with a vanguard on it. He likes it but admits he has had to replace a few things on it.

    What do you want to know? I have one and love it. As far as I'm concerned they are the best bang for the buck. Built strong / handles well / easy to maintain / Cut is great ( I deal with a lot of Bahia) / great speed. My dealer is great to. Try one you will like it. Any other specific questions just ask.

    I think they are built pretty good but need refinment. In quality cut issues. I only know of one lawn cutter here with one and it does ok in field type mowing but on the manicured stuff it clumps pretty bad. Dealer support is a major concern for me. Here the dealer is as rebel says all show.

    So far very well. I will be adding another 72" Prowler on this spring. Going to replace another chopper.

    To the original poster... didn't mean to get off subject, just haven't seen these guys post in a while, so I wanted to ask.

    Good to hear it. It's nice to have smooth sailing on the equipment isn't it? Beats the crap out of some issue every time you turn around.
