You have to wonder about the size of that 18 hp Kohler too. :(

 

That can't be right??

Is it just my eyes or is there bunch of camber in the right front wheel? That might make it dance around when in use.
kinda like the shopping cart I always wind up with.

I see it too.  Great Dane was never known for making extra sturdy equipment.  The dancing versions were even weaker.  :D

I don't know anything about that machine. But have to say that a commercial walking mower will mow a lot of grass in a short time and do it very well. I used to watch guys mow banks you could not stand on if you were not hanging onto the mower, and they never flipped one. The guys that mow at the office have a 48" ferris for mowing around the building and use a Skag ZTR for the open area. they cover about 3 acres in less than an hour.
Last time I priced a good one, ExMark it was about $3200 and had a 24 hp motor on it.

OK, who wants to pull start that 18hp motor, when it's cold, on a cold morning. I think I'd go for the electric start option.

Scag mowers are the way to go, i use a ride on Terf Tiger and walk behinds, hydro powered with Kawasaki engines, quality is 100 % and backing is great, heck with the dancer, junk in my eyes as a commercial mower.

There are a lot of good machines out there. But I have to admit I see at least 3 Scags for 1 of any other brand.
