Thornton Bud!!!

I am LOVING that Deere Walk behind....

Tell me more about it...

Looks like a 52 inch? How does it handle? Stripe?

I am a Walker guy myself but I am a huge fan of the 7 Iron deck.... Currently running a Scag Walk behind (If Walker was going to continue making them I would run Walker) and I have always loved Scag, I think they are bullet proof..

Anyway, I know the 7 Irons stripe great on the Deere Z's (I.E. Jr.s picture thread) but I have been looking at the Deere Walk behinds lately...

Here is a problem... THERE ARE LITERALLY SO MANY GREAT WALK BEHINDS CURRENTLY FOR OUR INDUSTRY, HOW IS A MAN TO DECIDE ON WHICH ONE IS BEST?!?! I WISH I COULD HAVE THEM ALL!!!!

P.S I would love a Turf Tracer too...

P.P.S I would love a Bob-Cat Z control hydro Walk Behind too...

P.P.P.S I would love a Snapper or Ferris Hydrocut too....

I love my Scag wb also Armsden... I prefer Exmark though as I love their ztr's, the biggest lawn/landscape equipment auction is 3 weeks from ttmrw & I'm looking to get a Hydro 36" wb, my Scag 36 belt is great but belt drives kill productivity in the small backyards with turning around. You have to go with the Kawi though!

I have seen your Scag J.... It's awesome!!!

True that about the belt.... I currently have a belt 48 and it's a beast to throw around but I have been running belts for so long that I am super used to it. (that's not to say that my next won't be a hydro because it will)

Belts are also not conducive to sulky operation.... Have you ever seen a guy on a Hydro with a sulky that actually knows how to back up and handle it? It's truly a beautiful thing.... Are you running a pro-slide? Do you like it? I have always wanted to try one....

I have the goslide & LOVE it! But if I to get another it'll be the proslide, it'd be quicker to just step off and have it lift.

Hydro + sulky = awesome. A proslide is even better though.
