Here is mine. Like it pretty good, seems to cut awesome, and gotta love the extra horse power combined with hydro convenience. So anybody else want to show their 36" walk behinds? I thought one thread with various 36"s would be neat, i like looking at other people's mower, and thought others might too. So post away, and if no one wants to, i guess this thread will fade off into the archives...

LAter!! chris

I bought 2 machines from Husqvarna R&D department at the same time.

I picked up a 62" ZTR with a 39HP Kawasaki and this one for $6000. I sold the ZTR for $6000, so I basically got this one for free.

39HP? Jesus!

I don't have any pics but I have a John Deere gx45 36 that I follow around every now and again. Mows really good actually.

It's a mid to late 90's GS30. Oh man am I glad the Walker has electric start. I feel so lazy after using this thing for years and now sitting down and just moving my hands.

The picture is two years old. It's funny looking back. I'm wearing that watch now. Also at the time that wasn't a work shirt but now it is and it's not as white.

Since then I've remove the discharge chute so it's not up like that all the time. Yeah I know what you're thinking.








I don't and didn't discharge. I have a mulch kit on there.

Some good looking machines. Wish mine was a viking, would match my 48". The only thing i don't really like is the staggered front castors. You have to really watch the long leg as it will whack stuff. Mine has like 1225 hours, and i hope to get lots more out of it. The kawasaki still just purrs with no smoke or leaks. One thing i have wondered is, since this is the only 36" I have run, Mine seems awful twitchy, Like hard to keep a straight line, barely touch it and it jumps around. I figure it is where it is so long and narrow, and maybe the huge drive tires? So are they all kinda twitchy? Or is it just me? Might need to log a few more hours and might get better at it..


LAter! chris

Man, that's just absolutely crazy ... what does anyone need a 24 HP V-Twin on a 36" machine for ?? Oh, don't get me wrong, it's a very nice machine and I'd like to have one like that myself ... but what do you need it for ??

Here's my old 36 Husqvrana with 13 kaw. Decent mower, the ETS controls are great. That Husky with 24 Honda is sick!!! I would never sell that thing. Although people might think I'm compensating for something..lol

That one is a bobcat as well how much did your engine cost? To make a long story short i have another machine no deck or anything with a13 briggs i think. So im waiting for this one to die then put the other one on. :cool2:

I read that somewhere I just got the mower like 2 weeks ago from a friend for $400 its runs good i made some adjustments so it drives straight and the paint which im not done with yet. You think thats a fair price?
