    Anybody use this mower? I have a chance to pick up a "used" one at a pretty good price. It's actually a leftover "new" one that the dealer has been using on his own property for several years - but it only has 30 hours on it!!! (And it would come with a "new" mower warranty of 24 months!)

    I tried it out today - I liked the 21 hp Kubota diesel (quiet!), power steering and the bagging system which is rear discharge directly into a large (14 bushel) bagger with automatic (hydraulic) emptying. Also, it's a "traditional" riding mower (2 wheel drive) which will serve me well on my rough and hilly properties.

    48" mower deck seemed to cut decent. But I've never read much about this mower so I was wondering if any pro's have had any experience with it???

    These units are a big thing in Europe.

    Direct baggers other than say "Walker" are just not big here in the US for some reason.

    I don't know why though... I'm sure it's a great machine.
    If you bag a lot, I see no reason not to buy it.
