    Just wanted to know if any of you guys out there have ever used or demoed the convertible. You know the one that is a walk behind then you throw a switch and it becomes a rider.

    I've never seen one in real life. Only the ads. I'd STILL like to know who the girl in the ad is though!:p

    I would like to know who she is also.:cool:
    In a neighborhod where I work, last year there was a guy that had two of the convertible mowers. Seems every time he used them he was working on them. When I would pass, he would wave, and shake his head. He also looked kinda :mad:.
    His helper was cutting with a 48 inch belt drive mower. I said to myself, I would never get one of those. The idea looked kind of neat though.

    Rich Davis (rich dtlc) does have one and he says the company will not help him out. He has had problems with it and they either wont work on it, no parts, no return calls, no dealer support or something. Anyway didnt sound too good. I would stay away....far away!
