I was thinking about getting the quick 36'' hydro WB for hills and to get threw gates. I already have a ztr 61'' scag tt. I just need a good WB mower. So I'm think maybe a 36''? I like the fact they are light and compact. The price is $2,500 for a new one. Is it worth it, or should I try to find a used one?

you would probably have trouble finding a used one because the owners are so widely spread throughout the U.S.
That $2,500.00 one is a single Hydro not Dual. Im just letting you know incase you overlooked it. I will get a single hydro myself when I buy my 36" Quick.

But if you ae plaing to use it on hills and in tight spoats the sales rep sayed the dual pump might be a little better in the long run !!
PS I just got off the phone with him and only live 2hrs from them LOL

Is it really worth getting the dual, it like a grand more. I mostly need it for tight spaces on banks and hills. My ztr might roll or turn over. Is there any other WB in the same price range thats better then quick 36'' hydro single?

Look on Ebay, craigslist and at your local dealers for some used walkbehinds first. You can usually get a twin hydro one for a pretty good price vs a new one. I'd rather put $2 or $3k into a used one, rather than buying a Quick. But that might just be me.

I mow mostly flats, and for that the single hydro Quick is great, but it's a beast on slopes and hills... you need a dual hydro for that, period.

Look at the DUAL Hydro QUICK 36 or 44 ...under 4G's for a fully loaded WB....

I don't know what you mean of tight is....but a 36" belt drive Scag will work fine on hills. I cut a lot of holding ponds with a 32" Scag. It would be a little cheaper. Don't try a single hydro on hills!

I had a single hydro walk behind that was a major pain on a slope.
Upgraded to a dual hydro, and it's great.
From my limited experiance, if you have a hill, a dual hydro is the way to go.
