    Yes!! I just purchased a 2008 Quick 36 Samurai from Better Outdoor Products!! :usflag: I've got 3 feet of snow, but the mower is on the way anyhow! Just wanted to share my excitement! :clapping: Purchased a trailer (6 X 8) and will be on my way to pick up a used blower that I purchased from a member on lawnsite....When is spring again? :confused:

    Nice - am thinking of going the same route myself with a Quick 32 or 36 this next season. So, if this was your first 'real' mower, what was your previous 'fake' one:) Don't be scared, I cut 3/4 acre lawns with a 21" Toro S/R last year. Got in great shape doing so, but may be time for an upgrade!

    I work full time....then after work, for "fun" I cut 8 lawns, a couple were pretty large lawns....it all started with Grandma, I took care of her lawn, then her friend, then her friends....friend etc....anyhow, I have a lawn-boy 21" commercial 6.5 (it does have the self propelled option)...a walmart string trimmer and blower....UGH!! Well this year I hope to get 15 lawns to do "after work", do you think I'll be able to handle it? I hope to mow 3-4 after work (I get out at 3:30) maybe 5? I am going to get a new string trimmer and hand blower.....Can't wait for the new mower to get here this week!!
