    Do you mean in the quality of cut or in top speed? is the 99 better

    speed is the problem. very poor on the hills and slower in the flats as well

    Make sure you have the bolts on the top of the hydraulic pumps tight (the ones with the small bolt and nut running through them). The one on my left side backed off when i first got it and i couldn't figure out the problem until I called my dealer. All it wanted to do was pull left and on hills the thing would choke out. Hope this might help.

    They advertise 10.5 mph...take them to task. Mark off a 100ft strip and have someone time you across that distance!! I am interested in what you are finding since I am about to buy a 48". On my Scag Cougar 48" it is so rough riding I don't care to go very fast. May get a Ferris for the ride.
