    A high quality moderately price walk behind 25-30 inch swath. Something your average joe can mow his large yard quickly with a nice finish. The mower should last 10-15 years if taken care of.

    This mower should run high horsepower with a top notch engine like Honda or Kohler??? It should mulch tough grasses without having to slow down more than 10% of top speed. Additionally it should handle moist grass the same way.

    Does anyone make anything like this? If they dont why cant they?

    How about $1,300. About 400 bucks more than a good 21 inch swath walk behind.

    HMMM. You dont think something like that would have crossover commercial applications? Would it not appeal to guy who mows his own lawn, but likes the koolest thing on the block?

    I have a toro 32 belt drive that does just that. Paid 1800 4 years ago and although it it not used a whole lot it is essential as it is easily 3 times faster that a propelled 21. We mainly use it around pools.
