Well, I've been looking at it all season. Its got a 25hp kaw. and a 60" xr7 deck. Many will say that its a bit underpowered, but in my experiences thus far, it takes a lot to bog it down. I demoed this machine in early august and i was very, very impressed. Not much to complain about. I did my usual saturday mowing and even with it being still a bit unfamiliar w/ it I cut my time by almost 25%! I am very satisfied with the machine and relieved to get rid of a 727 that was described by another cutter in my area as "a 7-iron lemon". Although it was a demo machine I had but 1/4 of the hours on it before purchase. It was a pleasure working with the guys at Windridge Imp. in Elkader, Iowa, I must say!
