Best /preferred mower for wet weather

Hi all. Been a member for a while but not posted anything. Great forum though and full of information.I currently run my own business, just working on my own, qualified horticulturist and arborist but now I mainly do lawn mowing and treatments.I'll leave the arb work to the younger guys with unbroken bodies.I've been through the search function looking for the best/preferred wet weather mower ( and other versions of wording it) and the ones I've found are 4 years or older.So my question now is .....As the new mowing season approaches, what will be your preferred wet weather mower??I have to cut when wet. No work = no pay.Most answers were Etisia or Viking.I have looked at both and noticed that this years viking mowers have dropped in HP for the machines.What machine will you go for?I already have a 4 yr old Viking mb448 and a year old duocut Etisia.

      Luke, maybe worth declaring your interests here and in Weibang photo thread ?
      • Hi Gary

        I have been in the gardening industry of over 5 years and now work with Garden machinery!

        I have used many machines over that time and I am really impressed with the Weibang!

        Just thought I would share my thoughts and opinions on here!

          Is that for Weibang's UK importers ?
          • Yes Gary that is correct now I do. I was lucky to get the chance to use the Weibang independently before I joined the importer. So I can comment on it from an outside point of view also!

            Good point Gary - Luke I think it's important to be clear and honest from the outset. If you have a vested interest in promoting a product then come out and tell it as it is please.

            I was interested in Weibang but my nearest dealer is...well, not that near!

            • Hi Ian

              Did you use the dealer locator on the website? How far was your closest dealer?

              Thanks

            Cool - then pertinent experience is always welcomed.

            Just ensuring transparency, so our members can understand the background to any comments.

            Enjoy LJN :)
            • Of course Gary it was never a secret, I am lucky to be able to comment from both sides of the pond :)

              • Hi Luke, welcome aboard, question for the Weibang mower, why is the top speed quicker for the domestic mower 48 quicker than the equivalent Pro 48 ? As time is money for us operators shouldn't the Prom have a faster top speed?
