Talked myself into needing a new WB. Gotta be 48", hydro, floating deck, more than 17hp is a plus. Business is about 80% vacant junk and foreclosures so I cut down some garbage, then recut 'em every 2 weeks. Need something I can cut a thick never before cut acre, then adjust and cut 10 more lawns, then next day put on fresh blades and stripe a subdivision.

Have 2 fixed deck pistol grip WBs I'm unhappy with, a John Deere and Great Dane. Changing deck height sucks, and they're both underpowered among other problems. Also, my wrists hurt but gotta be able to muscle it around some, and my local dealers suck. Gonna take a chance with bigger city dealers 50 or so miles away.

So far, priced an Exmark Turf Tracer with 19HP Kaw for $6100. Thinking everything else is probably comparable. Calling a Toro dealer in the morning. Suggestions? Deck differences? Prices? Incentives?

This is the most common cliche type thread here.
