Got mine going today, and all I have to say is wow! Awesome quality of cut, more power than anyone would ever need (The 16 hp Kaw is overkill, and sometimes overkill is good!), All around one of the best mowers I have ever used! And as far as BOP, wait aside, they could not have been better to work with! Had a problem with shipping and after one phone call it was delivered to my home with no extra charge. I don't know if we are so used to getting crappy service when dealing with some companies that when someone like Better comes along and treats you right you feel they are going above and beyond, or are they treating you like ALL companies should. Make sense? Everyone I talked to there bent over backwards to help, and believe me if even thought I wasn't being treated right I would have asked for a refund. The fact that they were so great to deal with is the ONLY reason I stuck with them through the deck delay. I was a little aprehensive sending 3 grand to a company I have never heard of before, let alone buying a machine sight unseen but I'm happy I did. Gary, awesome machine, now how about a 52"?
