I just purchased my first Country Clipper – Challenger 52” with 27 HP Kawasaki with joystick. I have never had a Zero Turn before, nor ever tried one. My previous mower was a 50” cut garden tractor with a 22 HP Kohler Command. I looked at other models and what made me decide on this brand and model was: Flip up front deck, Floating front axle, Joystick operation. I took my 14 year old son with me to test drive/mow and after just a few minutes he gave me the ‘thumbs up’ to tell me he liked riding it. That sealed the deal. It is easy to use and comfortable to ride. There is not much on this mower that can break or need repaired. I am glad I made this purchase and will definitely recommend this brand to others.
