Got my Big Dog Alpha MP with 60" deck delivered last night and WOW is this a great mower! What used to take me 4-6 hours on a lawn tractor only took 2 hours with this beast (roughly 3.5 acres). I looked at mowers for several months before deciding on this one and have no regrets. This is the only mower that I found that had a 7 year warranty, which is unheard of with any brand of mower. Not only that, but it's made right here in America.
