    I have 2 of the gold pro series. I like the cut,and also they mulch & Bag like nothing else out there.I use them mainly for mulching, and on hill sides or banks. I like The Motor bike sound of the engine. and the smoke!

    I've used them for 40 yrs. The older 3.5 hp mowers seemed to have as much power as the newer 6.5 hp mowers.

    Was going to buy another one yesterday but, my dealer was selling it for $400.00 bucks w/o tax.

    I ran one for a little while but could never get it to run the way I wanted it to. The RPM's would flutter up and down until you hit thick grass then it would flat line out. Just never seemed to have the power I wanted.

    Then it went south and was hard to start and would start and run for 3 seconds and cut off. Brought it to a shop they charged me $75.00 to rebuild the carb and it still didn't run worth a crap. This mower was only a year or two old at this point. I would buy one again if I knew it wouldn't give me issues.

    I have a 19 inch 2 stroke lawnboy its amazing! Starts easily, cuts great and mulches amazing! I don't have a bag for it. I wish I did but I know if I find one it'll be pricey.
