    Has anyone ever cut with a Lastec mower before?

    I never even heard of them. Do they have a web site to check out?

    Yes, www.lastec.com

    I demoed the 61A articulator last year and thought it was a great mower. The three articulating decks really follow the contour of the ground better than a straight deck will. It left a great cut I mowed some really uneven ground with it. All in all I was very pleased with the machine.

    What stoped you from buying one??? I'd get serious about them but the dealer is 2+ hours away.

    How did the Lastec discharge? I believe it discharges through the rear of deck? No dealers in the Atlanta area, they have good write ups from golf course people.

    No dealers around. Shane White from Lastec brought the machine out. It was $10,500 with the Generac engine, I think it was 28 hp. Thats was just to much to spend on a machine with no local dealer support.

    It will side discharge or rear discharge. When I demoed it it had low lift blades and I was side discharging. To make it reay discharge you have to remove a couple of plates covering the dischage openings and i'm thinking you have to move or add some baffles under the deck. You can do a search on here and find a lot of info about this machine.

    Lastec did a lot of advertising in various trade magizines about being seeing them at the EXPO. Seems like they were making another push toward commercial cutters.

    Did anyone check them out while at EXPO?
