I was fortunate to demo the new Convertible mower recently for a week and I can tell you it is a fantastic machine. I will be buying one before the start of next season for sure. I don't have any pictures to post but check out John Gamba's post on this mower for pictures. Besides the obvious benefit of using the mower as a walk behind on steep hills or under low hanging trees I found the controls to be the most responsive and easy to use of any mower I have ever tried out. This was very helpful as we had just had almost 3 inches of rain several days before and many of my yards were still very wet but I didn't have any problems with tire spin. Another big benefit ( at least in my opinion) is that it has a much higher reverse speed than a normal walk behind. I also found it to be very good at not tearing turf on turns. The cut was as good or better than any mower I have tried. To me this mower seems to be the perfect machine for the solo operator (like myself) with limited trailer space who would like to have a rider but knows there will always be times that he still needs his walk behind. The only bad thing I can even come up with is that I had to give it back to them so they could take it to the Expo in Louisville next weekend!
