It's absolutely awesome!   It's been throwing it down all day today and this thing has continually filled the grass box to max capacity.  We had to cut some recently laid turf that was over  6" long, it was no bother and left a great finish.  It is so quick, the guys can only just keep up. I had heard they were good but it has exceeded my expectations.
