    We purchase a Great Dane Super Surfer earlier this year and the dealership had an Eastman commercial mower there. This thing looked like a tank with wheels. The one that was there was a push one, but they also have a self-propelled model. The deck seamed really solid, ball bearing wheels and a nice 6hp Kawasaki motor. This is the only place that I have seen them (and maybe with good reason). I did a search on LS and found a couple of mentions, but not much. Is anybody using them?

    Reminds me of a Deere by the look of the deck on the bagger models. Look like a tough machine as said. Guy on ebay is selling one for 900 it looks like. I'm curious about these now as well.

    Out4now, as I mentioned, these machines looked to be really solid. They weren't fancy, just a mower but nothing looked to be cheaply built on it. We have a 21" that we may replace and I remembered these and wanted to get some opinions on them if anyone had one.

    Wonder what the cut is like?

    The cut on my LB is horrible at the highest setting.

    I like the one with the real roller instead of the rear wheels. Got to see one in real life. :D

    Go over to the uk.

    I wonder how much the eastman costs? The push model had to be about 1000.

    The SP21k looks good. Real tough lookin'. The one that showed the side bagger might get real unstable and hard to push with that big bag on the side, just my 2 cents.
