  • I've had 48's but used 56's for a long time now . I've used lots of different brands , the main issues with Hayters is that the drives need servicing regularly . They also don't pick up well in the wet .

    That said .. I still don't believe theres better mowers out there that will stripe a lawn for maintenance guys . Some guys around here are raving about the Viking and Stihl plastic mowers .. they  say be good but they look like they belong in Toytown ! 

  • I haven't got one but I speak to another guy that does, I was talking to him monday about it and he loves it, he's only got the 41 though, he used the kaaz for most his lawns.

    • Cheers guys. I have a client that has a Kubota that is from kaaz factory which picks up well in wet conditions and a friend of mine has a cobra also kaaz built, looks the same so presuming the same. Just they are a bit longer than Honda and hayter and I put mower in side door of my transit and it's a few cm to long so I was looking at hayter instead, I know I could fold top half of kaaz handles, but it's just the hassle of doing it every time.

      • If you raise the rear deck height adjustment right to the top before you put it in the van you lose a few cms off the length due to the angle

        • Sounds like you've done it before. Lol

        • I was thinking along the same lines as Dan, would a block of wood under the roller would help in the same way? 

          • Should do. You'd need a "double" block, so the roller sits on some wood PLUS has a batten BEHIND it to keep it in place.
