Great Dane SS

Mr Mow It All

I've run scag and exmark mowers for years. I just purchased a Great Dane Super Surfer 52inch 22h.p. kohler on it. This seems like a great concept for mowing small to medium size acccounts which would normally object to a rider on them. I was just wondering is there a fatigue level after a certain time of standing all day and if this would be a good mower for acres? Thanks for your help guys!

I used my SS all last season. It doesn't seem to be that bad to use for periods of an hour or so. Most of my stops are less than an hour of mowing. Legs seem to get a little rubbery when hopping off after two or more hours on it.

lawngirlfl, How many units do you have? Do you have the SS? Did you get them after all the updates or before? Was wondering if you had any problems with mowing when you run parallel on a slope?

My problem is more with the hydros. It seems that when one side is low it seems to run low on fluid and bogs down. I'm trying to determine if it's all the new Super Surfers or just my unit.
