I have a Great Dane 48 Jr. I use it to mow 2 large cemetaries....I really dont know if I'm impressed with it or not. I do know that this type of mowing is rough on any mower. I have gone thru at least 6 shoulder bolts that are used on the plastic anti scalping wheels on the deck. I also have ran over two of the plastic wheels on the deck. I was just wondering if the Jr. mower is made cheaper than the Sr. model? All other parts on the mower are a almost overkill on heaviness in construction. One last question... has anyone seen an outlet for the small plastic wheels that are used on the deck.
