    I've tried out the Billy Goat 33" and really like how easy it is to control. I noticed that the Quick 36 is a very similiar setup. The 36 looks to be a better mower, but is also more money. Does it handle any better than the Billy Goat? I already have 44" and 52" walk behinds and 2 Lazers, so I am not looking at any of the larger hydro or belt walkbehinds, just these two. Any help is appreciated.

    We have purchased a Quick 36 this season, and it is the most valuable piece of equip. that we have. I can't say enough about the level of support you get from the company. Hands down, go with the Q36

    I picked up my Quick 36 Samurai last week, ran it over my lawn to test it out and get a feel for it, can't say anything bad about the machine at all....I would definetly get it.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys... we're doin' our best!

    Dependable: The B/G is a good little mower, but is more in line with a Troy 33 Wide-Cut or a Sutech. Side by side, the differences are very apparent.

    The Quick 36's run heads-up with any of the traditional belt drives. In terms of compactness and ease-of-use, there's just no comparison. Our 16HP electric-start Kawasaki is a really sweet machine and our customers seem to be awful happy with them. Lotta product for the money...


    Friends don't let friends use belt-drives. :nono:

    I received my Qiuck 36 Samuarai three weeks ago and this machine is great. I do have a few questions:

    How can i get it to turn easier while I am on the sulky? Is there any special trick?

    Other than adjusting the cables is there a way to make it go faster in reverse?

    that is it.

    Thanks for making such a useful product at a very reasonable price, and more than anything THANKS FOR DOING IT IN AMERICA !!!!!

    kipper, good thought about the reverse. I would think it would move faster or at least have less resistance on the lever. I have not looked at it, just been too busy,,,,all other items,,,,are good,
