    bought a kut kwick slope mower. it was a good deal, but I think each transaction stands on its own. Iron Planet was easy to deal with. Unit was in Wi and I'm in SC, so inspection report was critical to me.

    Thanks. Nice machine. Looks like I can't spell auction too good on this post. I have had my eye on some low hour track loaders.

    I have never seen one of those is like a bush hog that you ride?

    38 hp Yanmar diesel, 72" cut for use on severe slopes. Mostly owned by municipalities and crews that do highway maintenance. New they are about $45K, I picked this one up cheap in an online auction. Advertised to cut up to 40% slope, but it is virtually impossible to roll it. I've had it in some pretty precarious places. I use a Kubota 9540 4wd tractor for most bush hog work, but use the KK on serious slopes.
