    Stopped by my dealer today for an echo rapid load head - looked at mowers - he's got an encore 48" hydro fixed deck he will sell for 3500 and a demo encore 60" inch front mount ZT big kaw for 6500 - and i can't justify either purchase right now. dog gone nice mowers - don't need em - want em bad though - I got it bad fellas - this isn't a business it's an addiction! - an obsession! - or am i the only one?

    I'm sort of an equipment junkie, though I tend to purchase what I know I need, rather than what I want, Because I "want" everything.

    Get it and call it an upgrade! Surely you could put a hydro 48" to good use. . .
