    I am going to buy a swisher mower tommorrow,it is 8.5hp with a 42" deck and 4 spd. I realize it is not the best mower I could buy,but I am currently laid off from my full time job and need an extra mower real soon to handle my 12 yards.Only having 8.5 hp ,I wonder if it would pull a velke?The salesman said it would.There is a nice thick plate perfect for mounting one.If I did use one,(my weight being 180) would it just go real slow or just burn the transmission up?Thanks for your input.I did use the search feature first but didnt come up with much.
