Need to replace quick 36

I have been using a bop 36 for a few years now and am very happy with it. Do to the uncertainty of the companies future I will be looking to buy another 36 soon of another brand. Although I am happy using the walk behind with a sulky I am intrigued by the standers as well. I loved the price of the quick 36 but realize I will likely have to spend more on a similar product from another company. A local dealer has an exmark 36 walk behind but I think it is about a foot longer. I like how stuby the quick is. Does anyone have any recommendations for me. I really would like to keep it around $5000 for this.

Thanks in advance

I'm kind of surprised you're happy with quick36. I got one of the first ones, and there were no deck support rods on mine. It caused alot of deck problems that needed alot of welding. Besides that, i replaced too many spindles, clutches, and other parts. Glad that's over. I'm VERY pleased with my 2000 exmark metro 36 that i have had for almost 5 years. The only thing i replaced was a muffler and a belt, because it was in rough shape when i bought it. Good Luck. I should add that for the first year and a half, i was pleased with quick36.

While they are a fair amount longer, Ferris makes a single hydro 32 and 36. The 36 is shorter due to having timed blades. These feature a floating deck, too. Quite sure either can be had for under $5K...maybe more like $4K??

Fwiw, I run a Q32 as my sole mower with another as backup. They've been good to me...am on my 6th year juggling the two.

I'm actually thinking of getting a 32, and i use 36 mostly. The 32 would fit in any gate, and big enough to cut any property i have (with sulky). Glad to see that you use one as your main mower.

My (2) Q32s are both single hydros & I walk every step. I 'should' be ripped!
While I did originally buy the BOP step-saver, I decided it wasn't worth leaving it on. Single hydros with a sulky interfered with my striping quality. Some will argue with this, but I didn't care for it. I ended up taking the wheels off the step-saver and using them on the front casters = as they're an exact fit.

Wow.... No deck support rods. That really was an early model.

I still have my Q36 Single with Sulky but the Dually versions are much faster and more productive for me.

Gary is still shipping parts fwiw.
