    If it matters to you Better is made in amercia were as redhawk is made in china.

    Depending on what red hawk you are looking at it could be a belt drive. I vote quick

    quick no doubt. but i heard they suck in certain types of grass....heard they are made specifically for the types of grass where they manufacture the mowers??? this was hearsay so dont quote me on it, but figured id let u know so u can look further into it. id figure a mower is a mower, but i remember sum1 sayin that they dont cut good in a certain location's grass??

    I own a Redhawk it was a ok mower to get me started still runs ok. Its underbuilt and cheap. If I wasn't so strapped when I started I would have gotten a Quick36 in a heartbeat. Learn from my mistake and get a Quick

    Actually, just look for a quality used mower. You probably will not be happy with either.

    Where in Ohio are you? I have a Quick 36", you are welcome to come check it out if you want, try it, etc. Overall, I feel the Quick 36" is a very good value for what it costs.

    I am experimenting with some different blades for it, I believe the right blade might mitigate the biggest complaint (it doesn't cut well in tall/thick/wet me a mower that deals particularly well with those conditions). It cuts very well in side discharge and bagging mode in my conditions (which includes tall/thick/wet grass so far this Spring), I am looking to improve the mulching performance currently which is a lot to ask for with the conditions so far this year.

    I have owned neither but from what I have heard/read I would choose the quick 36 hands down. Excellent customer service.
