Q: I am interested in the Swisher 66" model; can it be delivered to my home?
by Mark Warren from North Carolina on April 04, 2016

A: Mark - yes, the Swisher FC1966BS can be delivered to your home. However, the mower is too large to fit safely on the lift gate apparatus that is used on the delivery truck. So you would need to have a fork lift at your home to get the mower off the truck. The only other option you would have if you don't have a forklift or a loading dock available at the delivery location is to have the mower shipped to the nearest freight terminal to your home and you would go there to pick it up. You would obviously need a trailer or a truck to transport the mower back to your home if you did this.

The Swisher FC1966BS trail mower is made for those big jobs that need to be finished fast. They are designed to reduce your mowing time in half and attach to ATVís, lawn tractors and other utility vehicles to cut large lawns and meadows fast.

Three blades on the extra-wide 66-inch mowing deck and Powerful 19 HP Briggs and Stratton OHV engine are designed to handle grass up to 6Ē deep. The 66-inch side-discharge cutting deck cuts wide swaths and spreads the grass clippings out very evenly to... more

Question About The Belts
I am thinking of purchasing this unit, however there is an overwhelming theme of an issue about the belts. Has this issue been resolved? If it has, please explain what was done during manufacturing so this issue won't happen to my unit when I purchase one.

It's A Nightmare!!!
DO NOT BUY THIS! Nothing but a nightmare. Bought in April and burned the first belt in the first half hour of use. Took it to a service center to address problem after three weeks got it back to burn another belt within two hours of use.

It's almost July now and still have not cut my 3 acres. Customer service has not returned my phone calls, to send me a new one. Don't buy this product!!!!!!! I'm still out of $2400 yet, plus the money to have a Lawncare service have my grass cut.

Not Happy With This Product. Shop Around!!!
I've had the Trail Behind 66" in mower for little over a year now. I've replaced the belts twice each. After speaking with customer service, they advised me the unit was no longer under warranty. I told her I understand this but there has to be a problem with the machine.

I've been trying to reach someone in the "tech department" for 6 working days, Still no response. I've now been on hold for 33 minutes and they are about to close in 11 minutes. I guess I'll try on Monday. ... more

Replaced 12' Bush Hog
Purchased 2 mowers to tow behind a O Turn mower, went from 12' to over 14' with a 61" mower and 2 66" tow behinds. They cut very well, powerful and clean.

Operation and controls are simple, B&S engines run great and they look to be well constructed. Cut time is less than the Hog, cleaner, faster and they don't clog up. After 10 hours run time, all is well. Satisfied so far. Good investment.

Excellent Mowers
Very satisfied after purchasing 2-66" 19HP Finish Mower. Would recommend very highly a purchase of one of these mowers.

I have used these mowers for over 25 years using them to cut about 15 acres every 10 days.

Fine Mower
I've held off writing this review for a while due to some initial issues I had with the mower. Like other reviewers, I experienced v-belt problems, destroying 3 of the 50 inch belts before finally getting the belt tensioner set correctly and now the mower works great.

I have now been able to mow my 5 acres twice with no further issues. I have to say that customer service was excellent, sending me 2 belts under warranty and talking me through getting the tensioner set correctly. My only... more

Awesome Machine
This thing is a beast!!!! Anything I can drag it through, it cuts. I held off on this review due to previous belt issues...solved. It barks the belt a little on start-up, but any belt will when starting blades this thick and heavy. This is no toy mower like these cheap riders you can buy everywhere now, this is a serious mowing machine!

Great Mower
We've used this mower for just over two years now to cover about 5ac and have only had to replace the belts and blades once after my son decided to trim some bricks with it. It can handle the loading better than my rider pulling it, I'm sure my next riding mower will be able to work it a little harder though.

I'll have to give it a good cleaning and fresh paint after this season though.

I would recommend making the hitch end swivel like the mower end does to accommodate for towing off-set... more

The Old Swisher Just Wouldnt Cut It !
My old swisher 44" 8hp had trouble mowing a new area around my pond. I normally cut it with a bush hog but I wanted a more manicured look. This new 66" not only mowed it but it only took about 45 minutes where the old mower took 2 hours due to the motor bogging down. The cut looks great and the motor never bogged down once. I have been using the old one for 10 years now and have only replaced the blades and the belt. It is still in good shape and I intend to keep using it in other... more

Swisher Finish Mower
I have been pleased with my mower for the most part except a few things are troublesome and I would like to see some remedy.

1. I have had to put 2 new belts on the mower within the first day of use. I don't know if the adjustment for the tensioner was wrong but it did not seem right to go through those belts so fast.

2. I had to add a bungee cord to the idler pulley to keep it from periodically popping out of engagement. It's actually a good fix and works well so I'm not too... more
