    I’ve been reading a lot of comments from members here about your mowers, I’m not sure how to classify this mower.
    It’s not a rider, you really wouldn’t want to try unless you’re nuts.
    On the other hand, I wouldn’t call it a walk-behind either due to the rear discharge.
    The empty weight is a little over 2,100 pounds.
    It gets great traction on hills and small trees don’t bother it at all.
    It has no problem getting through gates, in fact most fences don’t slow it down if it decides to go. That's a six foot electric fence in the picture.
    It has a built in fly swatter which doubles as a kill switch – I guarantee if you grab the fly swatter it WILL try to kill you.
    It’s a ZTR, in fact if you grab that fly swatter it’ll switch ends so fast you’ll be amazed.
    It doesn’t mind trimming.
    It doesn’t mind mowing at night or in the rain, but when it gets hot it sleeps in the shade.
    It has a built in fertilizer dispenser.
    It doesn’t stripe very well, but it makes some pretty impressive piles.
    I don't think I'd try to load it on an open trailer.
    Trying to clean the underside could get you killed.
    It’ll last a long time with minimal maintenance, and when it gets too old you can turn it into 6,000 Big Macs.

    I'm not sure how you'd measure the gas mileage, but if you'd like to try I'll get my video camera.:laugh:

    HMMM...this makes me wonder. I've recently been taking this stuff called "SuperGreens" that is made from a bunch of different grasses. It is supposed to make your system ph more alkaline and helps your body fight cancer cells better. (I recently had a nuclear bone scan that didn't turn out too well) This stuff is kinda expensive...I guess I could just start munching on the lawn

    :p :rolleyes: :D
