    I've heard a lot of good things about them, so I bought one today, just wondering if anybody runs one and if they like it

    I have a 2000 54" Bunton w/b. Fixed deck. I've been real happy with it. Leaves a nice cut and stripes well. Did you get a w/b or a ZTR? Is it brand new? Good luck with it.

    yea it is new... kind wierd, it is belt driven with the ztr handle I drove the demo and sseemed to stear just like my toro proline It felt good turning, the onlt thing is I think I may remove the sulky and put my turf glider on it and put the sulky on my proline... My plan is to put my proline up for a back-up, because it is an older model, and run my zmaster and the Bunton....it is a 48 cut and a 17Ho Kaw. and floating deck

    Good durable mowers. Little pricey and a little difficult to work on but all in all i'd give them a A-

    haven't usd their walkbehinds but, if they are built as well as the ztr's you"ll love it. I just ordered my 4th and 5th, great cut, stipes awesome with no kit, built well, very little down time with mine. If I were in the market for a walk behind it would be on my short list of ones to try. Enjoy!!!

    My friend has a 32" with the honda. IMHO the honda is WAY UNDERPOWERED. I know this because I have so far put about 75 hours on this machine (more then my friend has)

    I had a bunton bullet as my first mower. After that joke, I will never buy another bunton unless its the old school varible speed drives.
