I have never owned one.. But my neighbor mows his lawn every week with one. I wonder if there was something wrong with the one MH81 mentioned, since I watch this one run up and down hills constantly and have never even heard him get into the governor? They may be a little underpowered but should do well for you if you keep in mind what it is and gear you projects and implements to match .
I keep looking for one to use as a dedicated mowing machine but have yet to find one at a price I thought was reasonable.
They seem to sell high in this area. But with almost an acre and a half of lawn I would love to have one.
I like my GTs
but have learned that a longer wheelbase, and larger wheels makes for a much smoother ride and does not beat the body nearly as much, when you spend hours in the seat.
Back when they first came out I was in high school and old Homer who worked for the school system would ride one all day long every day mowing school property. I always thought it was a neat machine.
