That's a serious mower. 60hp!!! It looks well maintained and 1930 hrs is not a lot for a diesel.

Wow, that thing is awesome.  Too bad I don't have a yard big enough to even park that monster in, let alone actually use it!  Although, I suppose if I could get it in my yard, all I'd have to do is start it up, spin it around once 360 degrees, and I'm done mowing!  lol...

I would think that thing wouldn't need more than 40 hp, seems to be a lot of ponies for mowing 7 feet wide.

My JD F935 is 22hp diesel, and it mows a 72" swath with ease.  BUT, all the hydraulics that machine has sucks up several ponies.  Still, 60hp seems a bit much.

Hey, nothing wrong with a little overkill!  You're right though, everything on this machine in hydraulically driven, so the engine isn't doing anything but running a hydraulic pump, basically.  That must be one hell of a pump though that requires 60HP!  The blades aren't even run off of the engine though, they are hydraulic as well.  The drive wheels, the steering, the lift mechanism, etc...  it is all run by hydraulics.  I'd hate to see the repair bill to replace hoses on this thing though once they start to leak!

IF it is built by Puegoet it will need every extra pony it can get since they are French ponies and will surrender at the first sign of trouble.

I can't imagine the amount of heat that hydraulic system generates. My neighbor has a large Toro (I think) mower with three decks and everything on that is hydraulic also.
