Greetings: I am a homeowner with a 1/3 acre yard with some slopes. Using a 21 inch mower it took me about 45 minutes to get it done. In heavy spring growth - my mower would bog and stall. I started looking for a commercial mower with a larger deck/hp to save time and and effort. I ordered a Billy Goat then discovered Better Outdoor Products. I determined the 32 would suite me as the 36 wouldn't get through my gate. I called the company and spoke with Tommy for an expert opinion and to talk about the machine. He was extremely helpful and when I explained my situation he suggested the 32 Ninja. He said the 32's Hydro would keep the machine under control on the slopes. I had some reservations about pull starting a 15 hp kawi - Tommy assured me it wouldn't be a problem. I placed my order with Tommy and canceled the Billy Goat. I had it delivered to my house as the pick up location was about 70 miles one way. It took me about 30 minutes to unpack it and prep for mowing. looking it over, it is obvious that it is an extremely well built machine. I opted for the gator blades and mulching kit. Installed the blades in about 5 minutes (plate was already on). Then I read the manual cover to cover. She started with one pull and off I went. It took me 15 minutes to mow front and back! The grass was cut very fine with no clumping. The mower was really easy to maneuver and turn. It handled the slopes - no problem. The hand controls are great and I felt no fatigue while manipulating them. It also stripped the yard real nice. Bottom line - this machine is exceptionally well built. If you are a commercial operation and are using a 21 because of gates - this machine should fit and will cut your times substantially. If you are a home owner with a large yard, this machine is very easy to operate and produces great results. Thanks BOP and Tommy for a great product and outstanding service.
