    I've got 6 yards and a Bunton 36" w/b and am ready to upgrade.
    I need some input on yazoo/kees. Anyone have one? This winter i can buy a:

    -36" cut"
    -2001 or 2002
    -15hp kaw. v-twin

    Is this a good deal? Are they dependable? What is good AND bad about Yazoo/Kees?

    Thanks! e-mail: jbsmowing@aol.com

    I would't really consider a bunton to a yazoo an upgrade.

    hey barkers--I'll bet you would be OK with your trade although I have neither of the brands you consider.

    the $2500 sounds interesting depending on condition.

    good luck.

    Yes we run 2 yazoo/kees walkbehinds but have nothing really to compare it to. We have a 36" 12.5hp and a 48" 14hp beltdrive walkbehind. They put out a great cut and the stripes look as good as all the other brands. The only trouble we had was with the engine and transmisson but thats Kawaski and Tecumsehs fault. But overall they are great mowers and if your ready for an upgrade I'd say it' a great deal.
