    hello,

    I purchased a 2001 19hp kaw. 52' turf tracer today, I was considering a new 48' fixed deck viking but just couldn't handle the expense this year. The turf tracer has the floating deck with 900 hours, I never knew they made a 19 hp? Plus next year i want to buy a ZTR AND ONLY USE THE WB ON HILLS ETC. that way don't you think i could get much more life out of it?
    I hope everyone has a good season.:D

    I tried out a 03 turf tracer yesterday, one word "WOW" very cool mower, congrats on your purchase. I love the esc handle design, it Handled like a dream. I think I might have to go with X when I buy my next mower! I am close....

    how does that slider work for you?

    I used one for a few days and wasnt too happy with it. If I was going down a hill, the thing kept slidding me under the mower, kinda scarey.

    Just wondering how it works for you, or anybody else that has used one
