    I have a 33HP/61" Predator Pro, a 25HP/61" and a 33HP/72" and love the machines. Good warranty, dealer support and built tough. I have had to "re-engineer" a few parts on the 72" because they use the same parts on the 72" deck as they do with the 61 & 52. The 72" deck weighs ALOT more and I have wore out almost all the parts that hold the deck on in 750 hrs. The 61's run like crazy though! Actually thinking of selling the 25/61 and the 72" and buying a new 61" Predator with the 16cc pumps so all my stripes are consistant.

    After seeing what the 72" decks look like, I would stick with the 61" deck. My dealer just sold a Predator Pro 37hp/61" last week. Got to drive it and it was nice. When you start the engine, it sounds as if your starting the engine of a skid steer.
