  • My 48 Pro is just shy of it's 3 year commercial warrenty and currently sat in the dealers workshop as it's lost it's umph, new belts and drives in all 3 gears at different speeds but the top speed is slow as.

    Whilst it's there I've been loaned a Hayter 48 Pro and once i can afford it will be buying one , it's head and shoulders above my Weibang and I loved my Weibang .

    It's lighter , more manourvarable , fits cross ways on my trailer and copes well with wet / dewy grass and I mow mostly every two weeks .

    The only slight downside is even with the modification it is pretty quick to walk behind but you can feather the drive , which is a bonus when getting inro clumpy growth you get from lawns with dogs !

    Have a look at the ‘Question of stripes’ discussion. I have the same question as you about the Weibang.  Still not fully decided, but leaning toward a Cobra Pro roller.  It seems whatever lawn mower you look at, there are good and bad reviews and experiences.  

  • Thats all i keep hearing about the weibang is the problems with it breaking  down and the warrenty not cover most things what breaks with them its putting me  off from getting one plus how heavy the machine is 

  • I havent decide either an leaning towards the weibang but its all the problems it cones with and the weight of it i thought the cobra machine were for domestic customers and not commercial

      I'm considering a Cobra Pro hydrostatic drive and will likely order one today. It's only slightly lighter than a weibang, but has a 21" cut.  I'm still trying to work out why it is more expensive than a Honda HRH.

      • I don't know the mechanics of it but the hydrostatic drive = expensive.

        The kaaz / cobra machines have models with "normal" gearboxes too, like the Honda

      • How did you get on with the cobra?

  • I have a look at the cobra not looked at them yet weibang looks like what every one buys i keep looking about see what other ones i see

      I ordered a Cobra today. As far as I know, it's the same as a Danarm that have been reviewed elsewhere on this forum, with positive comments.  I'll post more comments once I've used it a few times.  It's almost as heavy as a weibang, but I went for a Cobra as I get the benefit of a 21" cut.  A lot was also gut feeling. Not very scientific, but time will tell as to the wisdom of the decision.

      • Let me know how you get on with it am in no rush for my new roller i keep looking
