    Rossco,

    Thanks for that, am just doing the mowing part-time at the mo, however am slowly building a base of regular customers, and need to be a little quicker to fit more in on the days that I mow.As I'm in Cairns too, bloody hot at the moment to be pushin the pushie!

    It also needs to fit through gates!

    Will go down to the local dealer and have a sqiz.

    Just noticed your in Umina! My parents live in Saratoga, and I spent many years surfing around Foresters etc, no surf up here, but plenty of long grass!

    Cheers,

    Mitch

    I myself are doing this parttime but it's pretty hard trying to pick up more regulars when there's 30 or more people out there trying to do the same thing lucky for now i have full time employment which helps a great deal with exspences . I've tryed to fit mine through the side gates but the deck and the shoot get in the way .if ya do go the AMC let us know what ya get

    rossco .

    p.s addmin they have been around for years i found them about i think 9 years ago i think there at hoshem victoria
    sorry about the spelling

    Went down to one of the dealers here in Cairns who has Cub Cadet, Hustler, AMC and Cox.

    He's pushing the Cox, as he recons they are the lowest maintenance, "simple design" mower there is.The 13-32/ 15-32.

    He was saying that the mowers with hydrostatic transmissions don't go up hills very well, especially if it's wet, and well it gets very wet up here.

    Anyone with experince in this area, comments please!

    Would the AMC or Cox be fast enough?

    G'day Active Grip,
    I have recently purchased a SCAG Z Cat zero turn. (I have managed to put 50 hours on it). I went with the 36" deck as opposed to the other option of a 42" simply because i can get more rear access to properties with the 36". It comes with a 3 year warrranty. The deck has 2 year warranty with the 3rd Year parts only. It has a 19 H.p Kawasaki engine. It has a 115 ltr catcher attached to the side,which I have found to still collect clippings well in the wet-not getting clogged in some chute on the way to the catching point. You can mulch, side throw or catch. I found it a good entry point into the zero turn market. You should get change out of $15000.00. So far I'm happy but obviously time will tell. I had a small engine mechanic with 15 years experience(he's worked on them all-walker,toro,hustler,cox,greenfield etc) come with me to check it out and he was impressed with its design, engine and build quality, for the price. Hope this doesn't confuse you, but it's a big step!. Get the dealer or dealers to bring the machine to one of your properties so that you get a real "feel" for the machine and you will soon find a machine that is right for you. Happy tyre Kicking!!

    Simon,
    Great post, thanks.I had looked at the Scag on the net but cant find a dealer up here in Cairns.
    But thats the sort of thng I'd like.Small, uncomplicated, well built.I dont need all the bells and whistles.
    Although I did notice that the Scag website says they should not be used to mow on inclines greater than 15 degrees.
    Stay tuned!
