    I was browsing around on youtube and came across a Beast mowers video. Just watch the way the operator handles the controls! If I did that on my mowers, I would not be hearing a pleasing sound.

    Saw that video earlier this Summer.

    Lot's of stick "action" for the amount of movement by the machine.

    There sure is a lot of throw is the sticks for the little bit of ground speed it has. To do a zero turn requires you to be a gymnast.

    Imagine a china-men trying to operate that "thing". Then again china-men are good gymnasts.

    I like what looks to be a simple design with a low profile.

    Also think more manufacturers should go with 15" front caster tires!

    They used to have a video on Youtube showing the procedure for adjusting the drive belts on the beast. It was pretty dangerous. The video has apparently been removed.
