    Mowed all my accounts this week. Wife and Grandson also helped and had simular thoughts.
    FS100RX Have to get used to throttle, also hate the grip (they also like old 261T straight grip better) it seems to big, has alot of power at throttle. I think it uses more fuel than the 261T Echo.
    BR600Mag what can you say its a beast.
    BG86 cold natured, but good hand held.
    Snapper selfpropelled, hate the rear wheel drive and gas tank is to small.
    61" Bobcat Procat 27hp Kohler, plenty of power, quiet and they said they liked it just as much as the TT (and its 4000.00 cheaper)
    48" Bobcat Hydro WB 18hp Kaw, never run a WB much but tested it out in my yard before hand. Still takes some getting used to. Fine mower, and mows great. SOB is about like my garden tiller untill you get used to it if you know what I am talking about.
    New PJ trailer aint big enough (18') Two 61's the WB and the Snapper plus toll boxes pretty well have it full. Dove tail is nice and so is the side ramp and spring assist on ramps.
    And the weather was great, Have a happy Easter everyone.
