    Has anybody ran one of these:

    I would like to know if anyone here has run one of these mowers and they could give a little info. How does it cut and how does it handle hills?

    Is a Ztr better?

    griffy- I would be interested as well to hear any info on this mower. I currently run a Ransomes 60" front runner w/ 23 diesel mitsubishi. It is about 15 yrs old, built like a tank and runs as strong as day 1. It has just short of 2,000 hrs. Retired it from my lawn biz back in 94'. Since then it used on our 20 acres palm tree farm. The only problem with it is that they do not make them anymore. When we replace it we are thinking we will go with either a Hustler ztr, Kubota ztr, or Kubota front runner.

    We had a gf1800 4x4.Nice mower cut well,not as nice as a ZTR or as fast,but if you have tall grass or very wet conditions that mower is awesome.nothing will bog down that 3cyl,also it will not tear up a lawn turning like a ZTR,and it burns 1/2 as much fuel
