I have a Lesco 36" hydro and i have to admit it's probably one of the greatest walk behinds ive ever used. lays down nice stripes, cuts clean and flat, and will power through everything i throw at it. The only down fall is that sometimes the parts are hard to come by when needed. Luckily i have a JD dealer that has basically everything i need for it.
Not my best stripes but it'll give you an idea of how it can lay them down
