i heard about the belt thing
I shopped a couple of dealers and prices were about $100 difference. I looked at some used mowers that had the snot beat out of them. No one had any leftover 04 or 05 models. With what I sold my belt drive for I came out pretty good and paid cash for it.
I really like it and I know my productivity will go up, still very happy with it. Gonna try in Feb to get a quick 36 so I can get in those gated backyards.
Positive cash flow been real good this year. Even though the crooked oil companies are screwing us.
