Neat articulating mowers. Does anyone use this?

    click Mowers --> Lastec

    I really like this idea. I'd like to see some other companies try this. What do you guys think. Does it just seem so much better because its a clever ad by the manuf? Looks pricey. I also like the wing idea, and the fact they have some mowers up to 100' !

    The city here has a mower kind of like that it reminds me of a motorcycle with training wheels and a deck but bigger

    There is one like that near my. Its got a cab like a tractor but just one wheel in front and back. Very odd looking, with a batwing type deck on either side and in front. Cuts about 15 feet or so wide.

    Thats pretty cool its kind of like the encore prowler mid cut, The articulated deck on the encore is not near as complex as this mower though and I think that the prowler deck/frame is made more for operator comfort.

    I bought a Lastec 3261 AGC mower late last summer and I really like the cut it leaves and it does eliminate nearly all scalping. It rides very well too, with the articulating deck sections and the suspension seat. It seems to be built really well. Because I live in a state that has no Lastec dealers, I was able to buy mine Factory direct and save some money on it. Their prices are pretty similar to most of the other brands in their model range, and they have excellent Factory Direct support if you need it. In the 61" model, you can get the 28 efi Kohler, 29 dfi Kaw, 22 hp Yanmar diesel, 26/27 and 32/33 Generac, 31 Vanguard "Big Block" and 27 Kohler engine. Razorblades.

    I would love to get a Lastec mower. But, my closest dealer is over 2 hours away and my past luck with new mowers has not been very good. I think thier design will be copied by other Mfg's in the future.

    That is one serious mower. I also hope that idea is used by other companies and possibly made better.

    What's a rough price estimate on the 61" you bought?
