    I run a few WS, BUT looking for a 48"-52 backup. Something cheap and reliable....probably will go new. In the past I used Exmark Metro Hp belt drives, but this was 10 yrs ago....what am I looking at for a new one nowadays? SCAG, EXMARK, JD...Whatever u guys run.....thanks!

    48" metro is around 3800 with tax. A Viking is a tad over 5k. I know that's hydro not belt, but another grand makes it so much easier to pull the mower out and use it, plus resale is a ton better. If you want cheap look at red hawk or world lawn. I saw some for under 2k. Brand new

    Snapper Pro sw20 36" you could probably get around 4k. That is not belt driven however.
