    Well I took delivery on this beauty last week and I am amazed. I wasn't aware of all of the room there was for improvements to this desgn. But here are my initial impressions:

    No more losing your footing as you lean forward to adjust the side deflector shield. Big old honking hydro motors now have an electric cooling fan on the drive motor.

    Full stainless chassis including spindle housing. Now instead of a small plastic shield protecting the engine area from product, there is a fully enclosed spinner area.

    The handle for the hose reel no longer extends out over the side of the tank, because the hose reel is turned sideways.

    The new valve handles are an improvement too.

    Keep up the good work Mr. Rich! Thanks for changing the way I do business.

    Nice rig. I saw one at the MGIA and was impressed. Heck of a nice guy, too.

    You say this is new, How long did your old one last? How many hours until things start going on those? Really nice though.

    I sold it with 800 hours on it after 3 seasons. I had replaced the front caster bearings is all. I doubt if anyone has taken one to the end of it's serviceable life...yet.
