whats the feedback on these drives.. yay, or nay....

We had a customer put 60 hard (LOTO, Cumberland) hours on the 700/NXT set up with 0 failures! (not including human error)!!

We changed the tranny fluid once and gear lube twice along with 2 oil changes, other than that lots and lots of fuel!

Not sure what the benifits the #6 has over the NXT, but we put the NXT through the paces and were pleased with the results!

I know Sunsation is having really good luck with the 700's/NXT's on their F-4's.

I bought my new Hustler 41' Razor with the staggard Merc 700's/NXT drives and have put over 60 hard hours on them, including three poker runs and many rough ocean trips to Catalina and have not had one problem. Awesome powerful and reliable setup!
