i bought some new red max equipment for this year and the dealer carries this yazoo kees, as well as others. I was thinking about a new walk behind, and there was a 48" hydro unit there. i was very impressed with its design, and parts. I have had good luck with the kawasaki engines before, but this is a brand i don't have any expierence around. let me know what you think, only if you used one, i don't need opinions if you never touched one. i hope to get some demo time with it during the dealer open house.
