I have been trying to get feedback on this mower, but there have only been a few reports, mostly from users who don't have many hours on the machines, or who may not have much experience with commercial machines, period, and may not know what they're missing. Another comment indicated a criticism that I personally can live with, but there's just not much out there about it. I have heard vague comments implying they're somehow not working well for users, but in most cases they seem to have come from dealers selling competitor's machines. The deep discounting reported on the 44" phazer ($3999) does imply slow sales. But could that just be that most folks want more machine? I could use one for gates and delicate turf situations, and the price is sure right, but nobody wants a dog mower. That's more expensive in the long run. I'm just wary of spending money on a mower that won't do the job or worse, won't be saleable if I don't like it.
