    For the last week I have been running an Everide Warrior with a 60" deck. A dealer friend asked me and some other cutters to put it to the test. So I have been running it on everything. I have a neighbor who bought a Super Z about a month ago. So we did some comparing the two machines. Both machines have a 27hp kohler engine. both 60" . Both machines are quality units. Both have very similar features. Both are fast. the main diffrence is the mower deck. And I have to give the Warrior the edge in that department. The deck cuts tall grass wet grass with no problem at all and does a nice job stripping. Also one other advantage the warrior has is it has an articualting deck on it similar to an Encore Prowler. I personnally like this because it follows the terrain much better. The one thing hustler I think will have an advantage over the warrior is price but I am not sure on that.

    I just thought I would pass on the info for those who were currious!

    I just bought a 60inch warrior last week because the demo proved it to be very well built. I ran it for about 30 hours and could not put it through anything that it could not handle. I mowed fast and slow tall and short thick and thin hills and flat. I cut of any where from 4inches of, thick wet grass to, 1 inch of thin grass and discovered tht it was the mower for me.

    I've seen an Everride Warrior '05 demo here for $6,400, 25HP Kawasaki, 60" deck, 80 hours on it. How's that price sound to everyone? Seems a little high to me.

    That sounds like a good price for that machine.

    In my area the dealer that is thinking about becoming an everide dealer would be the one to go to. The hustler dealer is poor for service after the sale!

    I just did a two week test with the warrior. Probably the same dealership that green king is talking about. I am impressed with that machine. Good clean cut, fast good ride! And in my town the everide dealer would defintely be the better choice for service. They need for me a 72" and diesel power. I do not use 60" machines anymore but if I did I sure would consider one.
