    I think a sabre tooth would smoke it,just my 2 cents.

    Ya I would like to see a different motor on it then just a 33hp generac, would prefer a 30+hp diesel, now where talking!!

    But I see what benefit the sabre tooth has, they both will have good and bad point's, it all depends on what the owener need's.

    Me, I'm looking for a mower thats wide and can handle the occasional WAIST high grass and finish with a clean cut!!:drinkup:

    B/S, that means I could cut my acre of lawn in 6.52 minuets.

    A 15 MPH 74" deck could travel over 9.2 acres an hour easily. In fact at 100% efficiency (not possible) it would cover 11.2 acres in an hour. Reduce efficiency for turns and overlap and I can see where that mower could cut 9.2 acres an hour in very good conditions.

    The Yanmar 35 hp would be a good engine option too.

    It sure did make me laugh!!
    I just like it,, I have used dixie diesel 60" and loved it good cut and great power, cut down wast high grass on a one acre property I have are didn't look to bad, came back one week later with the Exmark and made it look like a even better.

    So ya I'm interested to see what it's got to cost and how its going to perform
