    Bought the Harrier last year.

    No problems with it so far. It is fast, even when reducing throttle it covers ground quickly. Border edges can be a bit of a challenge, quite often push it around them especially curved borders. be really nice to have variable speed drive.

    Picks up wet grass well enough, although after using it for the second half of the season I feel it could be better, Would like to try a Viking to compare to - maybe I'm just expecting a bit too much. 

    Mine kicks out cut grass from the sides if the grass is a bit longer, so I need to do a quick run over it again. Typical example is a 2 weekly cut where the grass is fed regularly and grows more quickly. Easiest solution would be weekly cuts but customers won't go there, or cut higher then lower, so it is what it is. If I ever search out a different mower that would be reason.

    Finish is really good, it is in its element on weekly cuts on well kept lawns.

      hi Scott

      thanks for the imput,yeah i had a demo of it at there hq, & the travel speed was what stood out to me, the problem with slowing it down on the throttle is you slow down the cutter bar.

      i've now taken the plunge & bought one, jobs that i would not have been able to do with my current machines because the grass would clogg up in the chute , i;ve been able to do disspite how wet it is in my area
