I just picked up this 2006 Buhler Y550R 3PH finishing mower. It cuts so nice and so fast. It is in very good condition. Down side is that it does not fit the iMatch hitch, I have to put on a mod kit for that but no problem.
I've been having problems with the 21 HP Briggs and Stratton V-Twin engine on my Craftsman so finish mowing was becoming a challenge; I'll work on that later but I still need to mow. Of course I really would have used this as an excuse to buy a MMM but at $3,500.00 I think it was too much for this time. Plus I "need" a landscape rake and it would be a stretch to buy that and the MMM at this time. I figure I can always sell a 3PH mower in the future if I do get the MMM, but so far this works real good for $750.00.
This was the first time I ever ran the 1026 with the loader off and I think I need some weights for the front. Of couse the mower rides on its wheels so it's not as much of a problems when actually mowing.
