Outside of the truck, this is my biggest investment.

$2900 - Less than an hour of mowing on it! Hydro - Floating Deck 44" Deck.

I really don't know much more about it, but I need to learn quick!

The guy bought it at an auction last year. Do you think I can fill out the registration card and get warrenty coverage?

I found out that I need to learn howo to:

Back up a trailer

Change the Mower Oil

Change and sharpen the blades (I think I am going to use ACE HardWARE.

AND MUCH MORE!!!! I don't feel ready, but at least I have the equipment.

That is a steal and a very heavy built nice piece of equipment. It almost surely is a dual hydro. I am a scag guy but I am really impressed with these units.

It's dual. Toro doesn't make a single.

FT, I might have a bid for you. It's in the Lake Phalen area. PM me if Interested?

Does the sharpener help you balance too?

Man do you ever tie that thing down good. I usually only tie the front castor tire to the front of my trailer... but I dont live in tornado alley:)

Yeah, make sure u tie it down well!

That's a really nice machine. I wish I coulda got a Hydro for my first.

It's hard to go wrong with a commercial unit as they last for years!

How does that Toro compare to the Quick 44?

Hydro Float Deck for $2900.00 you got a steal! Warrantly....maybe but let me tell you, that mower is a tank. I know because I run two of them and they have never been to the shop. Just change the oil, fuel filter and blades and buddy you are going to have some serious standing or riding time with that mower.
