    IMO, the 48" and the 36" hydro/lesco deck mowers are two different animals. The 48" is much more user freindly then the 36" does anyone know if adjustments can be made so there is less fatigue on the hands?? Also the qaulity of the cut is very noticable, the 48" cleans and cuts significantly better, even when the 36" is lowered it still doesn't clean or cut as well.

    My biggest complaint about the 36" is where the outside(left side) front deck wheel is placed, "poor design,imo" its is far to close to the out side. On most curved garden edges, if I keep the front wheel on the grass there will be a strip of uncut grass where the blades won't reach, if I attempt to do the job with the 36" either I will damage garden edges with the front wheel or take far to long not to mention ware & tare on the lawn.

    hate to start with a negative post ....luv the site
