Well what a machine is all i have to say. I used it on a hill that would be tough for a walk-behind and it just stuck there like it was nothing. The flex forks didnt do hardly anything to the cut on the hill. I didnt experiance anything out of the normal when going over bumps, as far as the deck dipping or gouging. THe 30hp Kohler is a beast of a motor. I didnt experiance hardly any rpm drop when i was going up and down big hills. The cut was great, it had the kit in it, and it did great. The only thing that i didnt like is that the height of cut is 1/2 inch off. If you want to cut at 4" then you would have to set it on 41/2". This is not the first one that i have demoed that did this either. I have demoed three of them and they have all been the same. And they were from different dealers, so of you put the spacer kit and all that in like i think i might to get some more lift then it would be even lower. Why is that. I dont think it is a dealer set up error because it was like that at other dealer ships too. All and all i will buy one in the spring... hopefully we can get the height figured out by then. Dealer also told me that hustler is coming out with an OCDC in the spring... Is that right or is he feeding me a load of crap?
