    As I was looking through the threads an ad at the top of the page caught my eye. It was for a 36" commerical w/b for only 1,925 +/-(including shipping to anywhere). Has any seen or used this before? Check it out at www.betteroutdoorproducts.com/our-products.htm

    Let me know.

    Looks like the Stealth mower - hey for the extra couple of hundred dollars you're saving, I'd rather buy an Exmark or Scag (there about $2600) - lots more durable, years of design experience behind them - and easy to get parts. I looked at a buddy's Stealth last year. He was all proud of it and the money he saved - I could have kicked the thing apart (it wasn't heavy duty at all) - sure enough, it broke lots last year. Just my 2 cents. I think the extra money is worth the headache it'll save (buy a exmark, scag, toro, gravely, etc...).

    yeah i saw a post on hear a while back from the designer of that machine. he came on and asked people what they thought about buying a machine online for cheap without the middleman. well that did'nt go to well, everyone wanted dealer support, he said it was only for those who can fix their own equipment. Then he said it will be EXACTLY like all the pro equipment Kawasaki or kohler engines, and i believe he even said it would be a hydro for under $2000. well then i saw the machine later and guess what
    It had a briggs motor and it was a hydro but not seperate wheel motors in back, it has the same hydro tranny as a john deere L100 series garden tractor, not the nice seperate REAL hydros like heavy built equipment. I like it dont get me wrong, it would be great for a backup mower for gated properties that you only need it for a couple times a day but it wouldnt hold up to heavy duty use like real pro equipment i do like the price though

    Jason/rookie:

    You are correct in that the Quick36 is not a dual hydro, but it doesn't cost four grand either...

    It does have infinitely variable ground speed, a true reverse, and a really high quality of cut. Our deck is a fabricated deep-tunnel, swept discharge design and is very well built. Just ask Pete Andonian at Accelerator Industries, he's seen it. Full sized wheels. Heavy casters. Easy height of cut. Electric start standard.

    The Quick36 is a very easy to operate and maneuverable machine.

    Comparing it to a Chinese-built Stealth is like comparing a Yugo to a Chevy pickup. You really need to see one.

    And yes, you can get parts delivered directly to you without driving to your dealer along with a nice lineup of accessories.

    Good value for the money.

    I'll stick with my new 36 Toro I just bought yesterday for $2200. Good luck finding a dealer with that thing too. No thanks. :nono:
