I've been looking online for a 36" mower but can't find one that fits my budget. I went to the mower shop and wow those 36" machines are too damn big for me and my small residential yards. But as I was about to leave I came across a new Sutech 33" with a 9hp kawasaki. The coolest thing about it was that it was about 60% as big as the other massive 36"ers. Also, it's only $1500 ! Is this a good mower? It also comes with briggs engines. Check them out (please) at http://etpetersen.com/ope/sutech.html. Tell me what you think and what engine package you would buy. Keep in mind that I'm a newby and at this point I'm not too picky, just want something cheap, reliable, and efficient. I'm pretty much just concerned with it's performance and reliability. So give my your opinions, hopefully you won't burst my bubble, but if you must, you must. Thanks dudes!
