Exmark Metro 32"............

Been looking for 36" WB for some small fenced areas and small yards. I came across someone selling a 32" Metro belt drive with a 12.5 Kawasaki that looks to be in superb shape and used on a personal lawn. The paint still shines and only the muffler has rust on it. Before I go look at it I wanted to get some feedback.

My question is mostly about the cut? Who has used these and what are your thoughts on it?

Those are solid bulletproof machines and they cut great. I wanted one but got a 36 instead (found a great deal). Many of my friends have exmark 32's and have nothing but good things to say about em.

I myself don't like the pistol grips. I had a couple 36's. I'm keeping my eye out for a 32 toro with the tbar

i have one i just picked up with the bagger on the side the cutting is phenominal mine has the the 13hp kohler mower power than a 32" should ever need the only compaint i have is the front caster are farther out than on my other walk behind so you have to weedwack fence corners a little more and drive i havent taken it out of third (i dont have a sulky thus why) turning in 3rd a little fast and kinda have to run to catch up and other then that a great mower. Ohh one other pain grease fitting for the spindles are underneath (inside of the deck) which is a pain to grease.

metro 32"

I just picked one up Friday night. I'm more excited than usual for grass to start growing. It's a 2011 model bought new in Oct. 2012. It has a bronco rider sulky and mulch kit. Picked it up for $1900, I thought it was well worth the money.

Awesome machine imo i've mowed 2ft grass and it didn't stall once. I had the bagger with mine which is as big as the deck lol. But I've never thought of a sulky on the small of a wb. Mine certainly had more then enough power to pull one.

Solid machine - You could spend less but why? - For the price not another choice I can think of that would give you more bang for the $ - excellent cut, if deck size is OK w/you and you can live w/belt drive you should be very happy.
