    Today was the first time I Have ever used a Larger than 21" wb mower. I purchased an Everride 32" WASp belt drive in the crate and man what a difference!! I now know,well not really what You Pros have to manuver around trees, cars,mailboxes,etc.!! I found Out if I used just 1st gear, and engaged the blades BEFORE putting in gear and releasing the thumb levers it makes life a lot easier and safer!! I guess I Will get better with time. I was quite pleased with the quality of cut once I got the Deck adjusted, What a pita that is!! One side of rear was in different mounting holes than other. I set it for a3 3/4 blade height. I am going to try and post some pics of yard and mowers. Thanks for all the input on the purchase. Remember Keep The Shiny Side UP!!:usflag:

    Nice looking 14SB! Those were tough little mowers that can hold up to commercial punishment.

    Yes they are!!!

    Same with mine. Just change the oil and your set to go, right? Can't have it any better than that. Mine only has a 4.5 horse engine, but I think it's plenty.
