    my old rider is getting a bit long in the tooth so i thought i better beef up before fall hits. cut my lawn with it a couple times already just to get a feel for it. pretty stoked for tomorrow to give it a real test:)

    Nice machine! Used a 52 S Series and controls were very stiff. Are yours? My buddy said they have loosened up now that its at the 100hr mark.

    I got a 48" hp, with the tri-advantage deck, it cuts great. I hear the ultracut is a great deck too, it looks identical to mine, maybe underneath is different, either way great machine, lets see those stripes.

    IMO you've got yourself the BEST all around mower in the industry. I had a 60" Turf Tracer and nothing competes. Looking to pickup a 52 TT next season. Congrats! Consider putting a Pro-Slide on it. Can't go wrong

    thanks yall! what a great machine. definitely going to strengthen my hands up a bit. kung fu grip. i hope between that and the controls wearing in a bit itll get easier as i use it. its not too bad, but after a manuever intensive trim cut im shaking my hands out on the stripes. just been awhile since ive worked my hands in this way is all.

    cut is good, left some stringers but i consider that normal. sorry, i didnt take any pics. ive never heard of the proslide, looks cool. i like the way it retracts. i ordered the mower with the single wheel velke just because that is what i had used in the past and knew i liked it.

    as for slopes, my steepest is tomorrow, so ill have a better opinion then. should be fine as long as im off the velke.
