Was talking to my dealer yesterday. He said that he has some great danes comming in next week. I can get a 48 " hydro with the 17 HP kawi for $3100. I don't see many of these mowers around as this is only the second year anyone around here has carried them. If anyone on here has one how are they? They look heavy duty and a good build but how is the guailty of cut? how do they stand up to everyday use? What other opinions do you have of these machines. I was thinking about getting a stander which one would you prefer?
