Why?

Why fix something that isn't broke?
A simple hydro walkbehind.
That's all I want, all I need.
A walkbehind is a secondary type mower for most people.
It doesn't have to be fancy or technologically advanced.
It just needs to do it's job.
I recently sold a Scag SWZ48, maybe a 1997 model.
It was a great mower except for the complicated balancing system for the hydros.
Twin tracking levers are simple and best.
Twin levers allow you to adjust the momentum of each wheel when on a long bank.
Now I'm looking for a 36" hydro and all the stupid variations and especially the outrageous prices are making me shake my head and wondering what these companies are thinking.
My Lesco was great with the twin hydro tracking levers, Bob-Cat used to be that way.
Looks like I'll be going with the Bob-Cat for simplicity and price.
You guys can have all the complicated high priced walkbehinds.

It is a shame a new Quick 36 isn't available new for you. The single hydros are slowish. The Dually hydro are very straight forward. Neither is over 400 pounds.

Gravely offers standard pistol grip and pro steer. I see two levers but im not sure if they are tracking levers or not.

I run Ferris but the snapper pro is simple and priced right, IMO.
