Isn't that the Lowes Lumber rig that was troubled and banned?  Never did hear if they got items fixed and selling again or just what??  Seems the mower blades were coming off while running?  Maybe they went broke trying to resolve the issue??

They got all the issues fixed and it now has a 3 year warranty

Mowing at 6 MPH is crawly-slow, but I guess it is better than a 21 inch push mower any day.

Ben, people had better stay out of the way when you mow! 6mph is pretty much full speed for most GTs

This would still lose a back to back tug of war with an Elec-Trak with only 550 lbs of pulling power . The Elec-Trak operators need no ear plugs or muffs .


I knew there was something to remark about here .

That's what I was thinking, too. My GTX will do 8mph but I'm literally bouncing out of the seat if I try to mow at that speed.

All the gas motor does is keep the batteries charged, everything runs on electric motors.

Well, if you mow a standard mower at 6 MPH you probably are moving fast.

 

However, I sell Ferris zero turns with full suspension on all four wheels.  You can mow at top speed (10 MPH+) and still get a great cut and still stay in the seat. 

 

That's why I say 6 mph is slow.  :D :rolling: :rolling:
