I've been very happy with the three I've had. I started with a "Classic" with 27 hp and since have added two "Extremes" both 33 hp one is 60" and other is 72". We mow some big places...3acres up to 18 acres...with some normal residential yards too...and I get great cuts at all of them. Easy to use and adjust....no major issues with any of mine really...plus the dealer I go through is absolutely first rate. Mine dont have front suspension, but I'm not totally sold on that anyway yet. Expensive machines, but all good ones are anyway. Blades spin crazy fast and you get a good stripe with either single blades or better yet with the X-blade two blade option. Awesome cut and discharge and no need for stripe kit. I'd love a vac attachment but they are super expensive and I haven't pulled the trigger on one yet.
