    does anyone know much about these? I was thinking about getting one since they are sooo cheap...i was thinking about using it on smaller lawns which i have very few of. Do you think it would fit through a typical gate? gates are usually about 36" right? i couldn't find the specs (width) of this mower....since it is a 36" cutting width i doubt it fit but i thought i would ask.

    also is there anything else i need to know about these?

    thanks in advance

    I like mine a lot. Just measured the deck width, it's a hair over 38". If you do a search for Quick 36 you'll find several threads about them.

    Got me, I never said it could. I've never tried to get it through any gate.

    Why? There are belt drives out there for the same money.

    If you're talking chain link it's because a 36" gate opening is larger than the gate. When you make space in the opening for hinges and the latch it will make the opening around 38-1/2".
