    Sorry---I have no experience with great danes but I'm interested in your experience with the '99 model---how has it held up?

    I'll give you the low down 850 hours,
    1 head gasket blown,
    1 hydro pump bearing went out,
    2 belts,
    a bad connector in wiring (cant find, it I thought it was relays going out but it isn't. wiggle the wires and it starts)
    6 sets of spindle bearings ( the bearing place was giving me the wrong ones!)

    Not bad if you ask me considering I live in the Ozarks where we grow rocks and people only want serviced every 2 weeks. The apartments I mow want 16 mows per year. I do charge them more per mow though.

    I am getting ready to order a new Chariot LX it has a suspension seat and a canister type air filter.

    Only 2 commercial dealers in town right now Toro and Dane, My mechanic is great to help me on anything so I'm gonna stay with him.

    The new LX is awesome! I tried one before I bought a standard new 2003 Chariot. I added the suspension seat. (I liked the fact the the Chariot was smaller, more compact which is better for my yards.)

    You'll love the new Chariot LX!!
