Anyone used the upgrade for the ultra? it includes a Honda engine and a Magnum type pump. looks like it would get rid of all the electrical problems of the Ultra. I just bought a Ultra that needs some work and thinking about trying this upgrade but wanted see what you guys think?

I talked to the Trugreen guys that have the upgrade. They seem to love it. If our Ultra gives out, I might upgrade it and keep it for a backup when we get a T3000.

Any idea on the cost? I thought about selling my Ultra but I wouldn't even know what to ask for it and with the cost of new equipment these days, it might be worth hanging on to.

The MSRP is close to $1600. More than we paid for our Ultra used.

I bought mine new in April of 2004.I think I paid about $4800 at the time. I'm having it gone over at a small engine shop right now. I told him I wanted all new springs on the motor and I wanted it to run like a scalded ape when I got it back. He knows his stuff so we'll see what he can do
