the walker mower in a 36" will cut down on the amount you have to trim

Don't read this......

I'm sorry, I must be missing something. If you simply compare feature for feature of a Hustler 37 hydro WB to any other WB currently made, it outperforms them in every area. Glad to offer any comparison. However, you probably want what's just "popular", so add up the votes and get the one with the most.

Dealer service after the sale SHOULD determine much of your choice, but it has to be a quality machine too. Exmark and Toro are basically the same machine, and Scag is good too. Gravely, is said to be great, Hustler too. John Deere, don't hear alot about those, but some people dont' like the cut of them, I priced them and compared to the Exmark and Toro, they were high on price, but same quality construction.
Personal preference has a bit in there too...

Eric,
I can't really agree with that at all. IMO, if you have to rely on your dealer for "service" you're already in the wrong business. Even if the machine comes from the dealer setup incorrectly, you should be able change it and correct it.
With so many mail-order houses, if your dealer isn't on the ball with parts you can find them very quick on the Net. Furthermore, if I have a problem, I usually go right the manufacturer and they either help me or give the name of a distributor for help.
What I'm trying to say is, IMO, a good landscaper should be able to maintain and fix his own equipment unless something really horrendous happens. However, I doubt that is the case. In any event service per say, is the least thing that would help me decide on a mower. Finally, that's why I have two WB's, just in case one has a problem. I also have two weed whackers, two pole trimmers and two snow blowers, too. I'd go broke paying my dealer $50/hour to fix my machine, anyway.
Pete
