    Yes I got mine in, I believe June of 2001, they did not have the 25 Kaw in them yet, they offered the Kohlor, but the dealer only ordered them with the Kaw.

    That's great for you guys but, the dealer here will not put an emphasis on commercial guys as far as repair goes. You go to the end of the line like everybody else. Nothing left to talk about. The only reason he's carrying them is that everyone has Cub Cadet now, like Lowes and I think Tractor Supply.
