    I demoed one for a few days, used it for 4 hrs and ran out of fuel 2x. I went through 8 gallons. The machine took awhileto get used to (not very groin freindly),It cut very good until I got into oak leaves then it was back and forth in one direction. I also had a problem crossing a small ditch, the ride on got caught and it was very heavy trying to get it off the ditch.

    That has got to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen hit a yard.

    Being a dixie chopper fan and owner. I hang my head in shame. That is ugly and looks heavy. I will stick with my 48" toro for walk behind work.

    that does look ugly. It just looks like they kinda took off the seat and put a platform to stand on and gave different controls.

    It doesn't matter how ugly the thing is as long as it gets the job done!
