Supaswift Big Bob with Kohler XTX Series Engine
I just bough this machine a few days ago for my mowing business. I bought it from Nowa Power Products in Bundaberg. I started it off by running it in first on a well maintained lawn, and then on some thick grass at the end of my street. It nearly stalled twice on the thick grass, but I recon it faired better than my old mower would have (and I cleared some wild blocks with that machine). The only problem appears to be that it struggles for fuel, presumably a carby issue. I deduced this after it sounded like it was chocking, then coming back. T...he choking got worse when the air filter cover was taken off, so i doubt its an air flow issue. Nevertheless, it seems to cut thick grass well. It came with a 2 year commercial warranty, so i don't see how i've gone wrong. The motor states that it does not require oil changes, but I have my doubts about that. Personally, I'll be changing the oil regularly. Its also worth noting that my father stands by the Big Bob series of mower. He bought himself one 20-30 years ago after he destroyed his old mower clearing the block he built his house on. It lasted him 8 years before he had to remotor it, and the chassis is still going strong after all this time. Its worth noting that dads was only used on thick grass briefly during its life, as it was mostly used on his well maintained lawn.
Purchased in July 2021 for $699.00.
