Exmark Metro question

I am most likely picking up a Metro over the winter. It is going to be a 36" but am undecided about pistol or ECS. Does it cost more for ECS and if so how much?

New? I think they are the same. Used usually ecs is more. I hate pistol grips. I had 2 36 metros with them and now have a 48 with ecs. Its the only way to go.

I bought a 36" Metro with ECS yesterday! I won't see it for at least another month but when the dealer starts doing turf again I am first in line!

Congrats!! You'll enjoy it. I would have kept my 36 if it wasn't for the pistol grips.

Get the ECS controls, they will help save your knuckles and hands when mowing close to a row of shrubs or near a fence or wall.

What type of grease do you use? Is there a specific kind or is the multi purpose stuff ok?
