I have searched the archives for information on the Turf Runner. I have come up with a lot of negative. I have seen them pretty cheap ($2200) with about 500 hours on them. I see that the Kawi had problems but the Kolher was good. Are they really that bad or are people using them for the wrong application? It seems that they would have a specific niche to me. I see a bunch with busted gear boxes - pretty common. But for light use wouldn't they be handy as heck? For leaves and such? Anyone LIKE the machine?
