    It is a great mower. Well worth the money and would fit your needs well. I tested this mower for TURF Magazine and you can find that article in April's edition I believe it was.

    Great little mower. Works as advertised. The folks at BOP are a treat to deal with.

    Here is a link to some pics I took a couple of weeks ago. Great quality of cut. Ignore the shirtless employee - focus on the mower - this should not be difficult to do.

    It'll get you in the game as a serious participant.

    Made my own sulky, so I can't comment on theirs; but it does a good job pulling me (195#)

    Great deck that will flat out move some grass and plenty of power to back it up. (16 HP)

    Compact size takes less floor space than a push mower.

    Only thing I would change is to buy the Kaw powered unit for a smoother sound and less vibe.

    i thought about getting one with the stripping kit, but then they said i cant make crop circles with it. :rolleyes:

    (from website)
    Ever wondered how they get the stripes on the ball fields you see on TV? They use a striping roller. By passing the roller over your lawn, first one way and then back, the grass leaves are slightly "bent" in the direction of the roller's travel. As sunlight is reflected by the opposing "stripes", the effect is way, way cool. With a little practice and imagination, who knows what pattern you may come up with! Our new 30" wide Lawn Striping Roller Kit is a quality-built piece of equipment and attaches easily to the Quick 36 using two bolts. 2004 Models require drilling two holes, all 2005 Quick 36's have mounting provisions already in the frame. Not for use with the Step-Saver rider. NOTE: This product is NOT for use in creating fake crop circles.

    How does this mower do on hills, slopes. It appears to be a very well built mower, particularly for the price.I could envision this mower for getting into gated areas.

    I bought one the first of this season. I absolutely love it. The company support is outstanding too. I really dont work for Quick but I really like the machine so I tell everyone. If I did not like it I would be very vocal too, so I try to be fair.
