    We just demo the new Rich Junior 36R. If your looking for a unit to get in gates and be rackable its awesome. Same quality as the rest of their line with some cool features. Getting ready to replace our last pg.

    We did try it on some pretty good hills. It did very good. It does not have the locking caster system like the others but the tank is located actually below the engine which makes the cg very low. Well thought out. Much more productive than the pg.

    We have 5 PG machines and on most days 3 of them are down for repairs. Just replaced a pulley on the pump system for $72. They really stick it to us on replacement part. We are going to place them all with the junior 36R.

    I saw that Z Rackable unit. Looks less intimidating than their larger units, but I still would not use those on small lawns. I would think the Ground Logic is much more effective on small lawns.
