    Today, at a store, I saw this mower parked on a trailer. This thing had one axle, with dual wheels (probably about 36" tall) on each side. It was orange, and resembled a giant old Gravely walk behind tractor, but it had a suspension seat attached to it, that just sort of hung off the back. It had a large deck that was hydraulically driven, and was titled with some sort of name thart gave the connotation that it was designed for hills. It looked like a monster of a mower, and had a larger motor on it, that was perhaps around a 50 hp, or so. Any ideas?

    No, this had real aggressive tires on it, like tractor tires, (like I said - dual wheels on eachside) and a hydraulically driven deck.

    Could it be a Yazoo?
    Or some other POS mower.

    Runner, these are the mowers they use to do the roadsides around Detroit. I can't think of the name right now but they do I94 and I69 with them all the times. The one company has a bunch of tractor trailers and about 5 or 6 of these machines fit on each one. I'm sure you've seen the ruts created by them on steep sidehills.

    I remember seeing something like that on ebay last year. I can't remember the name of it. But it was yellow.

    Damn, I thought I was going to be up all night.
    And for all the guys that said they can cut better than 40 degree slopes on their mowers, Yeah right.

    For some reason I can't see the picture. I was almost positive from the description that it was the Kut Kwick though. The machine is always at the EXPO in Louisville every year. Looks like a tough machine.
