I picked up my new Fastrack yesterday, 44"/18hp. What can I say, this is one sweet mower. I got a very good deal from my dealer and a new set of gator blades installed to boot. I mowed my yard yeaterday in about 30 minutes, with the old mower it would taken me about 1 1/2 hours. I think I can reduce that time once I learn how to us the Fastrack. The real test will come in the spring when the grass is thick. I want to stay away from a bagger if I can, so I may install a mulch kit with the gator blades.
