    Got to demo a new Everide Scorpion FX this weekend. Just thought I would pass along my thoughts.

    Good Points

    Well built!
    Good cut!
    Good air filter system!
    Electric start!
    Price!

    Bad Points for me!

    Too slow
    Not good on hills! However I have yet to drive any stand on that I was comfortable on hills with!
    Ride is rough!
    Handles on the steering are too tight my hands were wore out after a couple of hours of using it!

    Conclusion

    Not for me but It is a good well built and priced right machine. I could see it easily replacing a 48" or 52" hydro walk mower. Dealer quoted me $4999 for it!
    Unit was equipped with a 19hp electric start kawasaki and 52" cut.

    It looks a lot like the original Surfer and that was a great machine.
