    Ferris makes a 32 with a single hydro. I demoed one, but wasn't too sure about its turning ability on slopes. I believe snapper also makes one.

    Snapper does make one. I bought a 32" wb hydro last month. It works great.

    I would look at the wright 32" velke mower. If you have a stander, you like the controls.

    Feris 32" and Snapper 32" are the same. Built by the same company. I am also planning to buy one but I still wonder about its ability to run/turn on slope. I was wonder is it better or worst than Gravely 32" Prosteer.

    Well both the ferris and snappers are single hydros so when on a hill all the power is send to the upper wheel. Which cause to to spin. Which is why I got rid of my ferris hydrowalk years ago. Anything over 20 degrees you could forget it.

    Also exmark stop making their DD 32" viking this year. So only wright now makes a DD 32" hydro.
