    Anyone have a Exmark TTHP. We are picking up ours next week from the dealer. We bought TTHP with a 52" floating deck and a 17hp vtwin Kawi. Now my question is, does it clog up a lot in taller or wet grass? And also does it leave a nice stripe or do I need to purchase a stripping kit? Any feed back appreciated thanks. :waving:

    I have the same mower. It does an above average job striping. I dont think you need to by a kit. It will shoot clumps in wet grass but doesnt really bog down. I am a big fan of this mower overall.

    How much are you guys getting your TTHP 52's for if you don't mind me asking? My dealer has one with the electric start for 4999$

    That looks like a good price. The TTHP is an overall good mower. I find the hydros a bit too sensitive though. The ECS controls are supposed to be comfortable but your hand muscles will still get just as sore as with pistol grips.

    I have a 48 tthp and i love it, but i dont have anything to compare it to because it is my first commercial mower. Anyways i have a 15 kohler and it dosn't really bog down in grass but it does have some issues with heavy or wet leaves. I would def recomend it though.

    I've had a TThp 48inch 17hp kawasaski for the last two seasons,great mower. Never had a problem. The elec start is great, since most of the time in the morning it is still in the mid 30's before 10am. Doesn't strip great out here in the cold climate grass we have. Everyone wants there grass cut really short though, this might be the problem with not laying down nice contrasting strips. enjoy the new mowers, you won't be dissipointed. mark
