Re: hayter condor

I rate those things with the twin disc/rotors! They have stopped making them apparently, and a Rep from one of our dealers suggested that if GreenMech wanted to go back to making stuff like that, he would order 30 straight off!

Re: hayter condor

Excellent machine that will cut tall wet grass and also cut a well maintained lawn and leave a good finish. Only issue i find after a long stint using one is my Hips are sore !

I used Hy Tran oil in mine.
