    So far so good, no problems what so ever. Just had to figure this mower has a shutoff fuel valve pet **** thats sorta hidden, it runs much better with gas flowing into carb, :cool2: .

    do you have one yet?

    No the engine is under seat, its a couple of years old but only 75hrs on it. The deck is a 61 inch and the engine is a Kohler 25hp. I can post a pic.

    I've seen it, sweet!!! Its obviously a better design but out of my budget, this one was fairly cheap.

    I am looking into one for next year and was wondering the price of these machines. Their web site isn't the greatest and so far I've talked to 4 people to try and find out where the closest dealer is. One other thing is on their site under specs. the deck is "formed" I'm assuming they mean stamped and I've heard "stamped" decks are not the greatest. Its a 10ga. steel deck but I don't know how thick that is. Are these machines just an upgraded home owner model or are they built for commercial usage? I demoed an Exmark Lazer with a 66" Triton deck and wow what a machine and it is built like a tank so I know I will get years and years of use with out any major problems especially the deck.
