    Got a demo from my local jd dealer. Nice guy, alwaya helps me out in a jam. Tell him i was thinking about getting a Quick 36 Samuri. He tells me deere makes a 36 and i can demo one in a couple of days. got it today and took it to a couple of my prop. to see what it could do w/ wet grass. Mower couldn't handle it in 2nd gear, deck kept clogging up and it wasn't like these were overgrown properities eithier. The price is around 3,000. Guess i shouldn't have wasted my time.

    I have one a few years old and use it mostly for stupid high grass this year. I get it out when everything else will bog down, like yards that haven't been cut all year. Busted a few belts and blades on hidden tree stumps, and a piece of train track but otherwise no problems. It NEVER clogs up, and very very rarely bogs down much at all, unless it's really wet.

    Mine has an older style deck I think. And I paid $1500 for it used but without a scratch. $3k is too freakin' much for one.
