I am thinking of purchasing a new walk-behind for next year. I need a deck that will fit in a 44" space...my question is, will the metro 36" fit with the deflector up? It's 47" down, so would it be under 44" up? The 32" deck is 43.3" down, so that would fit. Is the 36" much better than the 32"? A few more questions... -Should I get ECS or pistol grips? (ECS only on 36") -Is 12.5HP kawa good enough? -Does this scalp since it doesn't float? -What would the estimated price be? Thanks a lot for the help!
