We made the mistake of trading in our oringinal Surfer on a new Super Surfer. We have had constant problems with the machine; including the break-in-half item that has happened to so many. I think that the concept is good, trailer space usage is minimized, and the cut is decent. Unfortunately, I don't think that the company thought this one all the way through. Perhaps it was pushed out fast in an effort to get the bucks in. We have a great dealer, but we're not sure that he will always be there. Word is that Great Dane isn't too keen on standing behind their product.
