    Hey John how are ya? :waving:

    OK, On to the question at hand, well I'm still very happy that I bought the Phazer. I've had to have a few things worked out but that's to be expected with a new model. 1st thing was the hydro system did'nt feel very responsive so it was off to my dealer to see what is going on. I had to have the system checked out twice all it needed was just a slight adjustment to the system both times. The other thing was the PTO belt came off three times total. This last time it happened I was just starting to cut and I had hit a small bump and the belt came off. When I went to my dealer I was given 2 choices #1 Fix the belt temporally so I can finish what I was doing or #2 Put a brand new idler arm kit on. So I told the guy at my dealer to just do a quick fix then I'll bring it back and drop it off. I must say that with the updated kit I have noticed a little more power going to the blades I can now go through a grass that is about 2 weeks growth at full stick and leave no stringers. If you have anymore questions John ask away.

    It does fine both ways. I'm not scared anymore like I was with the Metro & Velky combo.

    John, The machine stops fine on flat ground or on an incline. I'll have to get some pictures. I have a lawn that has a slight incline to it and while it's not overly extreme It's enough that when going down hill with a beltdrive and velky it got a little scary at times. I'll probably be cutting that lawn Tuesday so I'll take my camera with me and snap a few pictures.
