Re: What GT Should I Buy?
My ditch along the rod is at least 20 degrees and maybe more at its steepest. I did not mow it until I got the Conquest because it was just too steep. the Conquest would slip and slide down the hill as I was driving, it could not hold its course.
I then filled the rear tires with Rimguard and that helped a lot, but it was still quite nerve wracking.
When I purchased the Prestige, the tires held a bit more Rimguard and by then I had purchased cast iron wheel weights. Each rear wheel now sports an additional 128 pounds (roughly) of weight that is low and wide. The only issue I have now is my big butt's desire to slide out of the seat!
I own a 2017 Simplicity Prestige 27/52 EFI, JB Jr, Johnny Plow Jr.
From 2015 to 2017 I owned a used 2013 Simplicity Conquest 27/50.
From 1996 until 2015 I owned a White LT-16 Vanguard V-twin and 2 stage blower.
In 1991 I purchased a used 1984 Gilson 16 HP opposed twin. It was a horse!
