    It was delivered today. For those that gave me suggestions for getting it off the truck, here is how I did it. Earlier in the week the shipping company called me to verify everything. We talked about all the details and about how to get it off the truck. She said, 60 bucks and we'll send a truck with a lift-gate. I said hell yeah. the driver called me today and let me know he was on his way and I met him at the house. He put the mower right up by garge door. Here's a BIG THANK YOU to Fed Ex, they did a great job with my delivery.
    I will be using the 32 as a back-up to my 48 and to get in gated yards....lot of those around here.
    If you haven't ever had a mower shipped to you.....well, let me just say that I think the steel cage it was in had to be built around it. It took me about an hour to get it out safely. But that's a good thing. Anywho, later.

    You never mentioned where or what you bought. I'd love to know.

    It is a Redhawk. I saw an ad in the latest Turf mag from Midwest Equipment and Supply Co., Inc. They are having a close-out sale on Redhawk mowers. They have the 32" for $975. I was on the look-out for a smaller mower and thought this was a good deal. I don't care if it is Redhawk, $975 is a good price. I unpacked it and did the little bit of assembly it needed. It seems to be well-built. Just gotta take off the "Made in China" sticker, and it will be good-to-go! :) Seriously, it seems solid. I think it will do a good job to serve it's purpose as a back-up/gated yard mower. I'll try to post pics soon.

    You'll like the 32" for small areas. Too bad it's not hydro, but it should do fine. Did you get a mulching kit with it?

    Yes, the 48 belt drive is $1500 and the 48 hydro is $2075.

    Yeah, being just a 32 makes it fairly light. I think the belt drive will be fine. No, I didn't get a mulch kit with it but I am going to just block of the discharge and throw some gators on it. It should be good to go like that.

    Could you give me their website. I would like to look and see if they have a 36 hydro.
    Thanks
