Sorry for the delayed response. I sold my house in May and recently moved to another. It has been crazy for several months. This is first chance I have had to check up on the sites.
This Spring, at the original home, and for two months at the transition rental, the Zeon performed flawlessly (it now has 100 hours on it). My new home is smaller, but has twice the yard and many big rocks . So, I have had to buy a gasser..
. It is a Hustler Rapter 52". (Bent a blade before the first oil change) (I don't dare use the Zeon here for fear of bending an armature in a deck motor.) The Zeon handles much better than the Rapter in my opinion. It is a pleasure to use and has plenty of power.
If you find a good deal, I would get one. They are blast to use and so much quicker than the tractors...
