    It's got the 8 hp Honda engine. Hydraulically driven wheels and seed discharge chute. It's a great little machine, because, IMO, it's so simple. I use it a lot. I bought it new, and since new, reverse has been pretty puny, pathetic actually. Forward is fast! Anybody here have one of these besides me, and if you do, how well does reverse work on yours? Is there anything I can do to speed it up: bleeding or whatever? The manual, if you can call it that, is just a few photocopies; very litle info. Thanks for your help.

    I too love the machine. It makes allot of $$$. My reverse is fine. Not fast but as fast as I want to go. I have to make sure the blades are off or it wants to through th belt off.

    It does both. Quick way to improve a weak lawn.

    My reverse is very weak too, but I don't consider it an issue.

    yeah - no kidding! I bet they've very tough to find used. Heck - it's tough enough to find a good used aerator that they don't want an arm and a leg for.

    Holy ****! That's a good deal. Thanks - I'm all set on aerators (although I'll ask a few of my buds in the biz). In metro Detroit, you're lucky if you can find a half beat, used up old ryan for under $1,100. It's ridiculous!
