thats seems right around the middle. though i did get my 48" 17hp Pro V for 5730 out the door, including the bull rider sulky.

How do u like your Pro-V? Is it as toughly made as other Scag machines? Is it hard to stop when needed on hills and such?

Remember---you can get ztr's for those prices. Hydro walks are for those who need them, not for those who can't afford to ride (and make more $$$ per hour).

Some customers only want you to walk their lawn riding is not an option. I offer to take my ZTR but they want me to walk so I take out the Hydro I charge accordingly for the slower mow. I believe there will always be some market for the WB. I'm affraid what could be next is that I will need to compete with a 100 pound kid and a 21 inch walk behind mower because he is more earth friendly to their lawn. I am think this guy should get a goat.

You may find (as has worked for me) that it's better to drop those customers.
It's one thing if you have the time and extra space on the trailer but when you fill out the route it starts to cost money to do the trickier, or pickier properties. I look at it the same way as turning down lawns that are outside the designated mowing route.

Sorry I would never pay that much for a hydro Walkbehind.
Have you tried Lesco, I have 2 52 inch 19hp kawi that were under 4k, I believe 3699.00 will buy a 48 hydro(lesco)

well,ive owned my scag wb for 8 years or so and it's kind of hard to switch brands.i was quoted a turf tiger at around 11k so the hydr price i got didnt seem too bad.

Hey LESCO you get what you pay for. Once you run that hydro for a week or so, you will wonder why you ever ran belt drives. smoother,faster, and a heck of alot more forgiving. Scags and eXmarks are pricey for a reason, they are some of the toughest and deliver a superb cut.

I bought an 11hp honda snowblower with the hydrostatic drive and i love the way that works.i could only hope that the scag hydro gives me the same feeling.

i got used to mine in about 30 minutes.... and then after about 3-4 days of cutting i got good with it, and i could still tell i was still improving after a couple months,

$6995 will get you a 61inch tiger cub. We bought our latest turf tiger for $9400 or so last season.

You will love the Hydro Scag W/B. After a few days it will be second nature. Go buy an hour meter about $ 50.00 and very easy to install. Its very helpful on service time.

Good Luck
