    Has anybody heard about these things? I saw them at the Meadowlands show in an exhibit, with a video about how they work. The guy explianed that they are 27 horse kohler ride on blowers, that also work as truckloaders. Sounds like a new company to me, anybody have any experience with them? They have a website, which seems kinda basic - like they are just starting out. Here's a picture I found:

    I'm gonna see if I can demo one before the cutting season starts.

    I started a thread a while back about anyone who had purchased or demo-ed one to share their experience and hardly anyone responded.

    there was a big thread about a company on here who got to demo one and used it on several of their properties. it was a very indepth review. cant remember who it was though.

    Oh ok, well if anyone finds it let me know. I'm gonna try and do a search. I just do a small amount of lawns and its usually just myself and another person, so if the machine could increase my productivity by allowing me to do more than one function with the same machine, then it might be worth the huge investment. If you think about it, its not more than a premium commercial zero turn mower. Leaf season is just kinda short. I wonder if theres anything else I could use it for?

    Yeah, I read through that review. I'm looking for others that have experiences, too.

    From what I read this past fall here on Lawnsite, it is an excellent machine. However, the $12,000 price rules it out for me. I won't waste a dealer's time demoing one.
