I know this may not be the right place for this, but when you factor in the greater productivity of a hydro over a belt, and then add the fact that towing a sulky doesn't add to your downtime or repairs appreciably, why buy belt in the first place. I try to buy for value and production, not lowest dollar on the initial purchase. And to me, cheap used machines that you have to plan on fixing regularly are NOT a bargain. I've got 6 seasons on my Howard Price hydro and I don't know how many hours, and repairs have been under $200 total and availability is way over 98%. So tell me again how wise it is to save $1500 up front by buying belt drives. Oh yes,, I pull a sit down, homegrown, caster wheel sulky behind mine.
