    It's simple....your just starting right ?? save the money and start with a Quick 36 or 44...parts are such a non issue....I have two and use them daily on all types of properties. If something breaks on your engine...all dealers can work on a kaw. or briggs ...and if it's a BOP part ...it will be at your door QUICKLY .....If you can change your own oil ...you can pretty much tear apart a quick and rebuild it within an hour or so...most fixes on common wear items will take less than 15 min. to repair. IMHO....but its your choice to make.

    I would not worry about getting the parts and service for the Q36..I spoke to several people who have had Quicks for several years now and they receive any parts needed-next day shipping, for service they will take you through any maint step-by-step. I currently have one on order now....if you do decide to get one their are only a few '07's left at the year end sale price and according to Gary with BOP the regular prices are going up 5% in '08 (check BOP website for details)....hope this helps......I can't speek on the other models but the quality and price of Quick($1000 cheaper than competitors) speaks for it's self.:drinkup:....HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! TO ALL:drinkup:

    If your properties are open, I would get the T-bar, they are very quick. If you have tight places, with lots of ins and outs, I would opt for the Q36. You may see if you can talk to Jameson, he has both machines and could give you a better contrast. My T-bars are great on hills, I've heard that the Q36 is tricky to traverse hills with...IDK. Instant reverse would be a big plus.

    If you get the T-bar, let me know, I have a few custom improvements I like to make to them that make them more productive.

    Good luck.

    I would steer clear of the briggs, if you get a Quick 36, get the Kawi. It may cost you a few hundred more, but you'll be glad in 2 yrs.

    No I do not work for them. But in this day and age when you find a company with a quality product at a fair price with some of the best people you could ever hope to deal with..You support their cause. I truly believe that this is a company that will continue to grow in the industry and one that you need to look into as far as your equipment purchases.
