    The Big Red Machine finally jumped off of the trailer today straight from the dealer. I was trying my hand on my pond banks when all of a sudden the front end came up higher than my comfort level was game for. I was with in a Millisecond of heading back to the house to change my shorts after that one. :eek: All in all I am so completely impressed but the real test doesn't begin until years down the road. I want to tinker on it so bad I can't stand myself. [​IMG]

    Interesting. It has the same 2-stage canister filter as the smaller machines. I would have figured it would have the 4-stage Enginaire VLR cleaner like the Bad Boy for the money you dropped on that thing.

    All that said, that is a beast and should make you some serious money if you're a contractor.

    I wonder how it would ride with the Michigan seat?

    that is one awsome looking machine! it is really nice, i want to know how it does with ruttin and tearing when turning? when you get some time on it let us all know the ins and outs of it! i have to say that is pretty much the king daddy of ztr's it might not have the most engine and not the biggest deck but i bet it is the biggest frame with the most suspension! im sooooo jealous! one day i will own somthing like that for just myself no work.

    Are you kidding, that is the new style 5100, a dealer can't buy that machine for $10,000.00.
