    Well I got my Turftracer XP with 52 inch deck, 17hp kawi, and striping kit. Im so excited, I cant wait to get it, and use it. I tried out the demo unit, and the ECS controls hydro will take a little getting used to compared to my t-bar belt drive. Its the opposit of my t-bar so I kept messing up, but give me one morning and I will be a pro. I didnt get a sulky, because I want to get used to it first, and they wanted $300 for it, im gonna look around for a better price. The dealer said every one likes the excaliber blades so Im gonna try them out and then if I want purchase gator blades for it. Now all I need is a good leaf catcher, Im looking at the accelerator brand, Im running a wright gobbler now, but always looking for something better. It will be ready tuesday, but I cant pick it up till wendsday, due to my scheldule. I will post pictures as soon as I get time.

    Get the accelerator XL catcher. You wont regret it. Much lighter than the Gobbler.

    Well I got it! Im so used to my belt driven T-bar I looked like a ass the first time using the ECS controls. The thing is a tank, heavy as hell, compared to my 36inch. Im not quite sure about how Im gonna change the blades. I always push my 36 down, and put its front on my back steps, but the new one is way to heavy. Im using the excalibur blades, but I got the gators. if im not sure if Im gonna put them on yet. I may try running doubles.
