Convertable mowers?

Anyone ever seen the convertable mower made by Rich Manufacturing? The zero turn that can convert into a walkbehind by moving the control arm. I have a dealer close by and may go check it out, seems like the best of both worlds to me.:cool:

Merlin, You are right down the road from me. I'm in sanford, tramway to be exact. Do you know of tanglewood landscaping? Keith runs it and is a buddy of mine.

No I have never heard of them. But glad to hear there are people close by on here.

No I don't use one I saw an advertisment in TURF for one and thought about it.

There were a couple of conversations about the Rich Convertable here at Lawnsite a long time ago. It's probably been at least 5 years since it's been mentioned. As I remember there was no one that was real excited about them but one guy had one and liked it.

Thanks I found that out for sure... Not many did like them at all as far as what I read....
They do really look excellent to have if you can cut lawns commercially with one mower... I do like the idea of one mowerbut if it does break both are down... but most companies already have a backup plan of some sort... Thanks

I don't think it would be as sturdy as a standard ZTR or W/B. Why would you want to use it as w/b. The ONLY reasons I use my w/b is if the gate is too small or if my helper is finished everything and we are on a big property.
