Walkbehind Choice

I have been in lawn are for 4 years now and this year I am starting my own. The reason I posted is I am looking to purchase a new 48 inch hydro walk behind for around 4000 taxes included and need some ideas of what you would choose? I have used a John Deere 48 inch belt driven and don't particularly like it, and I have also used a 51 inch Scag hydro and it is a nice heavy duty mower but has had a ridiculous amount of break downs.

Try the new scag w/bs they are very durable and heavy duty. I dont know how old the scag you used but the only mower I see my competition with at least one on every truck/trailer are Scag hydros
