    Has anyone here purchased a lastec mower and what particular model? How has it performed? I'm thinking about purchasing the 86" model but want to here from owners of their mowers.

    call a few golf course Maintenance departments and ask the course sup. if they have one. A course near me that i work on the irrigation for has one and they love it. I ran it and was ready to get rid of my JD the same day, Over the mounds with no scalps, really nice ride. IMO

    I don't think tney are a sponsor anymore.

    The 86" deck comes with a 28hp Kubota diesel.

    Tony,


    I think it would be fine for the kind of lawns that I mow. I don't really plan on mowing anything overgrown so i think the 28 would be fine. Have you seen any Lastec mowers in Australia yet? I've only seen one in my neck of the woods but it was on a trailer. I did flag the guy down so I could look at it though.:cool:
