    I threw this all together in one thread to not clutter the board with multiple new threads. I hope each one can get answered.

    First of all, I plan on saving up some money and getting a Quck 36 from their website. What's everyone's opinion on the Quick 36? Seems like so far I've heard great things. What is the weight of one of these machines?

    I bought a Toro Personal Pace in August to use as part of my equipment next season. I still have books and receipt to it. The thing has never been used, sitting in my garage covered up and in fact has never been unfolded. Would Home Depot take this mower back at the retail price I paid or would they only pay me clearance price which was much less. I fgured if I could get full retail back that would be about $400 more toward saving for a quick 36.

    Should I just hang onto my personal pace for smaller jobs and tight places? Thanks

    you can try and take it back if they will not give you the money back then keep it. It will come in handy at times
    From what i have read on this site the quik 36 is a great mower good luck

    IMO I would hang onto the personal pace. It might be the ticket for smaller jobs area.

    I have both the Toro and a Quick 36 Samurai ..Keep the Toro for tight spots or small gated back yards....you never know what you might get into...The Quick 36 from BOP is GREAT !! I cannot say enough about the product and the customer service you will get from them. Good luck !

    wow, thanks for the quick responses!!! Anyone know the weight of the Quick 36?

    BTW, here it is only December and all this talk is itching me to death. I wish I could quit talking and get to the work. Do all you seasoned vets get this way in the winter too?

    Is just over 300# I like mine a lot. My wife is able to run it pretty easily. The quality of cut is excellent. I wish the deck cleared slightly better.

    I have been running gators and the side discharge or bagger, In the future I will run the full mulch kit.

    Height adjustment is not difficult, however it requires a socket (an open end or box wrench does not fit easily.)

    I added the lights to make life easier when finishing fall cleanups in the dark.

    In addition, I made the discharge chute a quick disconnect with no tools, by welding cut off bolts onto the guard. The guard attaches to the chute in the same manner as the accelerator bag does. Tip the guard up, line up the bolts, slide forward, rotate down, mow.

    I am not disappointed in the machine at all. I typically am not satisfied unless I buy the best. this usually means most expensive. Not in this case.

    The quick 36 was a good purchase. I use it primarily for trimming and under trees as most of my accouts are near 1 acre either way.

    If I ever added another crew, I would add a nother Q36.

    Thanks guys. Can't wait to get one. I know they say they'll ship to certain dropoff points. Are these only bigger cities?
