Not sure on prices, but you probably won't find new walkbehinds for less.

They do make 48" and 54" floating deck hydros.

those w/b prices are for the hydro's, belts are about $800 to 1,000 less. After owning both i would never own a 48" or larger belt mower. I hear the sale will end Dec. 31st. 02' but who knows what will happen. Nice thing is no payments till April 03'

And no more floaters in a w/b.

The guys at Lesoc finally got back to me. The prices I got are as follows for the fixed deck hydros

36" $3,299
48" $3,399
52" $3,499

On sale until December 31st! I didn't ask about the belt drives. I had several people tell me the hydros were better for hills and use with a sulky. I don't care for the fixed deck tht much. But I haven't seen it. How much trouble is it to adjust cutting heights???

Envy, you can quick adjust height byy the front spindels, and also by the spacers on the blade spindels. Also they have differant mounting holes for the deck to mount to. So all in all theres alot of adjusting, my thought get the floating deck if they make them, but thats me. Some one mentioned no payment till next april, what financing is that thru?

Lesco doesn't sell floating decks anymore. You can get them in a Cub but the price difference is quite a bit.

So How long would it take to make an adjustment?

If it's a real pain I'd rather get some brand with a floating deck.

if you cut most of your lawns the same height its not bad, but i mostly adjust by the front spindels. If I use the hydro for clean ups I might have to adjust the front spindel further up giving it a higher cut, but not too much or you'll get alot of blow-out. I'm going to make a baffle for it this winter, experiment with it next year. I cut most of my lawns at 3" I don't think I ever adjusted by the blade spindels come to think about it. Remember a floating deck in any model is going to cost alot more.
Anybody got any info on the financing for lesco, no payment till april 03, might have to get one before dec 31st.

2 things to think of before the $1,200 difference in price are

What kind of weather do you mainly mow in ? (belt mowers really s&^k when its rainy and wet out)

Do you plan on adding a sulky to your mower? (i weigh 225 and the hydro has no problem pulling me around, even up hills and when it's raining out)

I have 270 hrs. on my 48" hyrdo and have never replaced a belt on it.

If I were you Envy, i would take the $1200 and invest it in a Hydro..
You will make that money back in 1-1 1/2 years just with the time saved cutting.

Your reverse is right there at your finger tips. No more stopping, putting the handle in reverse, helping the mower reverse. etc. (Not that you should be reversing anyway!! LOL!! But it happens!!)

Another nice thing about the hydros is you can set your speed to where you want. With w/b, it's either 3rd or 4th gear. If 3rds to slow, and 4th is too fast.. you're screwed.

I can't tell you the number of times guys have purchaced a belt, and come back the next year to buy a hydro and kicking themselves for not getting it in the first place.

I couldn't agree more. I used to own a belt drive, key word, USED to. Now all I own and use are hydros. Pay the extra, it is well worth it, IMHO.

I will stick to that advice "if" I buy a walkbehind. My other stuff is hydro and I'd never go back to gear with it. I just wan't sure if it was so important with walkbehinds. I see now that it is. For the way I'd be using it a hydro would be a better choice.
