Are the blades timed on that mower? I just ask because they are not offset so there is no overlap unless the blades are times to not be in the same place at the same time. Just wondering.

Looks nice. I'm looking forward to your reviews.

Indeed.

No. This was a big enough expense as it is. Perhaps later.
I figured I'd do some research before buying anything else for it anyway. I don't know if the machine is big enough to do that or not for sure and at the moment, I have no HUGE lawns anyway. I can walk.

I inquired about the mulch kits to see what his opinion on it was. He suggested I try cutting without it first to see how I like it. He then mentioned that adding Gator blades may also improve the clipping reduction without needing a mulch kit.

At least he wasn't trying to push extras on me. I could have gotten 10%-20% off anything today, but I can wait. Besides, if I should think of something else I want, the local shop is having another open house on Mach 23rd with the same discount.

That is good advice. I'd get a bagging system before a mulching kit. You'll only use a mulching kit in July and August when there is no moisture in the grass and no leaves.

Meh. A set of high lift blades will make a nice cut and disperse the clippings. Gators suck. They don't make the clippings any smaller and they don't throw them nearly as far or disperse them nearly as much as the high lift blades will.

That's just my experience though. You should experiment.

I hear Cheese2009 is available.

I hope you get your Exmark! I didn't operate it, but the handles on the one I looked at were pretty nice.
If not for giving up the Husky and the 0%/36 mo offer, I'd not have had this for at least another year.

I never installed a mulching kit on any of my mowers and havent had any problems yet. I mow till late oct early nov to make fall clean up easy on seasonals. A cheap way of doing it if needed, is closing the discharge shoot.

Good God, man I dunno. Everything I learned about walk behinds I learned LAST NIGHT!

I really have no idea. I don't know anything about mowers with more than one blade, so I don't know how it works. There could be little sharks with figgin' lasers mounted under there for all I know.

All I see around my immediate area is Toro (and a few Exmarks) because the Toro dealer is right here. This Exmark/Ferris dealer is a 30 min turnpike drive away from me, but fortunately owned by the same guy as my local Toro dealer. Either shop can do warranty/service work for me.

I've nothing to compare it to, as I've never used a walk behind before, but I'll certainly be posting my thoughts as I use it.
Good deal man. Hopefully you will like it. Like I said I am currently running exmarks. I do have a turf tracer, and do really like the ECS system. But Im always hearing great things about the ferris walk behinds so im real eager to try one out. Its going to have to wait until next year though, I have a couple pieces of fertilizer equipment I still have to buy this year.
