What a beast. I want one. It's the godzilla of lawn mowers. I mowed thick grass with it that was 6-8" tall down to 3.5" and I never went less than full speed ahead unless I was turning. I never heard it bog and it dispersed that grass at least 6' out the side. Mt 26 hp EFI was in the shop for some warranty work so Nick's Lawn & Garden in Grafton Virginia was nice enough to let me take the new diesel Toro they had in stock. Thanks Tom.
