    That's why my post is worded and punctuated like it is. If you re-read it, you'll see that I think.

    Anyone got any more updates on the 994r? I’m considering getting a demo from my dealer to try out just haven’t had a chance. Now that the season is in full swing just wondering how they were working out

    I am loving mine and the more I use it the better I like it. The engine is smooth and relatively quiet (IMO) and it’s been very good on fuel. I’ve cut in a variety of conditions already and it’s handled wet grass well, cut through tall, thick grass without any strain at all. The suspension seat makes it ride great. Hope you get a chance to demo one and see what you think about it.

    I was curious about the cut quality because I noticed online the blade tip speed is 2000 lower than a gas model. I assume it’s because of the lower engine rpm but was curious if that makes a difference when mowing

    I’m really pleased with the cut quality as well as the way it disperses the clippings. I don’t have a gas model to compare it to as I was using a JD rear finishing mower on a compact tractor until I got the 994R. It would be good to hear from someone who has run both the gas and diesel models for a good comparison.
