    Better do a search.

    We've already been reprimanded too many times for using the foul language required to accurately evaluate that machine.

    I wouldn't trade my old Chopper even up for 2 new Vipers. I've demoed them and a friend bought one. He had so much problems with it in the first year, Lesco gave him most of his money back and he went and bought a new Chopper this spring and has been very happy with his new Chopper. It would take most of the night to list all the problems he had with it. I have heard the Lesco w/b are good mowers though.

    I love my 2 lesco WB's but wouldn't touch a Viper. One time this summer I was in my local Lesco and saw 3 of them in for work. I asked how many total this Lesco had sold and they said 10. That's 30% in at ONE TIME for work. One of them had its deck all messed up and they were using a chain and a forklift to try and pull it straight. The only good thing about them is at least they have Kawi engines.

    The Cub Cadet is the same machine also. Better have a direct line on parts!
