    Default Hardee Finishing Mower

    Does anyone have experience with the Hardee brand finishing mower made in South Carolina? If so, how would you copmpare the quality, etc with other brands you may have used. There's a used one for sale nearby and I'm in the market and wanted to get some opinions. Thanks for the input.

    I don't have any experience with the finishing mower but other equipment of theirs that I have used is high quality.

    hummmm, I have lived in SC my whole life and I grew up about 8 miles from their manufacturing plant near Loris SC. My next door neighbor worked for them for years. They started in the late 50's based on my "old" memory. The "Hardee Bush Hog" was the best ever built anywhere!!! Try searching HARDEE: Agricultural Equipment on the internet.

    clemsonfor: I did not mean and negative in my response but I just wanted to let the person that was inquiring know that Hardee Mfg has been around a long time and they make quality equipment. I apologize for any misunderstanding.

    I had a hamburger from Hardees. It was good. They probably make good implements to.

    What about their post hole diggers? I'm talking to a fellow who wants to sell his Hardee.
