hey guys. i was asked to cut a couple of lawns for a friend's father. only 3 lawns. big though. he gave me his great dane to use for them. it was one of those stand on things, where you have to lean forward. i have used riders many times in the past, Turf tigers, Walkers, and Lazer Z's. i tried this thing today and was not impressed. i found that whatever would hit my face or upper body when i am on the Z or tiger or whatever, double that, or triple that is what hit me. i had a hard time turning on hills, and goin down hills, and it didnt want to go up hills either. i constantly felt as though the machine was going to roll on me. i also almost took out a mailbox because it wouldnt go across a hill. for those of you who use this form of machine, what purpose does it serve? where is its niche? cause i feel that it fills no specific need. i could have done the hills that this would not do with a walker or tiger. so if you have one, what do you use it for? where does this machine have an advantage over the competition? or is it just a cheap pos?
