Got this yesterday : First batch from Hesston . Grammer seat , 26" tyres ( I put on the Deestones this morning ) and different engine orientation . Just cut some of the front lawn . My grass is NOT like Mickhippy's whatsoever . I've lived in Cairns , and that stuff is thick/lush/heavy , compared to the stuff 1100 miles south . The cut was on second highest ( uneven ground in many places ) , but it's the same as I got from the Kubota BX2360 54" MMM , so I'm happy. Quick ? Ridiculous ! This thing idles at the flat-out speed of a lawn tractor. The front run-flats are not standard , but the rep supplied them , since that's what we expected , and he kindly obliged It drinks fuel compared to the Kubota though. I've heard that due to our falling currency , the prices go up next month by 7.5% or so .
