I'm wondering why you guys have hard-ons for this thing? It's not really a walkbehind or a stander so what is it. It's allready been stated that it won't replace a walkbehind and it doesn't look like it will perform like a traditional. Ride-on, sooo what's it good for? It seems as if it's just a big compromise that doesn't really meet the true needs of either. The way i see it is why would ypu want to walk behind it? Oh wait I figured it out it stinks on hills. Your not going to be walking behind it on flat ground are you? I know you don't want this to turn into a pissing match but I just can't control myself sometimes. Don't believe the hype that your dealer is telling you, they don't know how well it works but they do k ow how much cashola they put into their pocket when they sell you this concoction of crap.
