    Just picked up a new mower today. I believe it will cut our mowing time in half over the 54" Z. I mean listen to these stats. 190 cc engine pushing like 5 hp, 26" cutting deck, solid frame built from 1" round tubing. I think everyone should switch over to these bad boys. :cool2:

    Is that a Weedeater brand? I never knew they made a mower until I saw one at Wally World last year. I'll bet they are one tough machine!

    I believe so too I mean everyone is always like buy something commercial, but the way I look at it is that I can buy roughly 15 of these for the price of one mower. Even if it lasts 6 months it will be cheaper than buying a new zero turn every 7.5 years

    There's another couple of BIG factors though, how much grass will the 700.00 mowers cut throughout those 15 years compared to a commercial Z ? And how often will the disposable mower be in the shop....and for how long (each time) ?
    I learned a long time ago that you can't just look at the initial price in determining how much a piece of eqp. will cost you.

    These little mowers are cute though....do they have a compartment for a compact, lip stick and make-up? :laugh:

    Ok I don't know if you caught on, but I am only joking. There is no way I would even try to justify that purchase haha. I'm not sure about the lipstick though. Maybe you could call them up and suggest it for say 10% of their increased profits.:clapping:

    I just hurriedly scanned through the thread and didn't catch the sarcasm. Sorry, I guess it's just that through the years I've heard so many people use that logic that I thought you were serious! :)
    You may have a point with the compartment for the "lady goodies"!
