    I saw an add in this months turf mag for midwest equipment & supply co. selling redhawk mowers at really good prices. Has anyone ordered from there? Could someone tell me what the shipping was?

    I ordered a 32 belt a couple weeks ago. Shipping was $150. I also managed to have them deliver it with a lift gate truck which was an additional C.O.D of $60. But WELL worth it to me.

    Any idea what the shipping for a redhawk 36 hydro to long island might cost?

    They ran an ad in Turf mag. I called and ordered. Nothing to it. She even asked if I needed to get anything else.

    Do I look like Fed Ex? Call them and ask. I have no idea. But it shouldn't be a crazy amount. But the shipping weight on my 32 belt was 500 lbs. The ship them in a steel crate-like thing that weighs a lot.

    What is the reason Midwest is closing out the RedHawk line? The prices keep going down.

    redhawks are not really worth it if youask me , just my opinion . Find some thing with a kawi motor. The reason redhawk's are soo cheap is because there sold with kolher motor's (not the best). they cost about $400 to the kawi 1000.

    again this is just my opinon. please don't take this the wrong way im not trying to bash anyone for buying a redhawk.

    If yournot going to use it alot go for it.

    So what did that 36" Redhawk cost you ???? I've been looking for a decent 36" that doesn't cost a fortune. I talked with my dealer and he told me the 36" Toro t-bar was $3000 and I don't want to pay that much for a mower that isn't going to be used very much.
