Anybody hear reports of power issues or excessive scalping with this set up? It's a 31hp gas engine. I'm in MO and we see a good amount of rain in spring. Grass grows quick. I want to chomp thru it at a decent speed :) Also, I am getting the Tweels. My thoughts are in addition to all the selling points (no flats, better ride, better traction due to increase surface area contact, longevity, etc) I won't have to maintain proper tire air pressure which should help with a more level deck.?.?

PS- I know the 997 is the best but I like sleeping in my bed. Thx. Specs in link below.

Unless you're wiling to move to the doghouse for a 997, then that setup sounds great!!

I suppose you could look at a used 997, or maybe even an orange one???

I've been in the doghouse...it's bad on the back. I hope this set up works well. I currently mow with an old Z425 48" deck I've had for about 9 years and a two year old 1025r with 60D MMM. The little Z is good for around the house and the 1025r will cut thru anything but mows like a tractor (for good reason). 1025r's are kinda notorious for leaving ridge lines, etc. I've level'd the 1025r several times, messed with tire air pressure, max'd out the mow height, set the anti-scalp wheels in every possible position and still not what I am looking for in a $20k+ machine (several threads on this site explaining it much better). So, time to get a mower. I want my weekends back. THX!!
