    I had decided to get a w.b. to use fore this season most likely a ex-mark metro, well ex mark has the new controls i don't like,can i get the old pistol grip? there is a nearby hustler dealer but i don't like the super and the other is just to much.My other choices are scag, husky,snapper and J.D. So my question is what do you think or should i get something else off the net?

    Also what do you think of the Bradly and the mowers at Landscapers resource?

    This will by part time this year so i don't want some huge expensive machine, if i go full time next year i will get a ztr, most of my lawns are flat.

    I saw the Toro time cutter this would be a good size but are they any good.

    I have been looking for used but most stuff is so beat i am scared to demo it ,let alone bye it!

    Talked to the dealer, he only stocks the new ones, so that opption is out. No exmark.:mad:

    So what is my next best bet?

    You can get a 2004 Exmark Metro with the pistol grips still. What dealer are you using?

    You just missed out on a deal a 2002 metro sold on ebay for about $800 recently. It was in Atlanta also. I totally agree with Walker Talker. I just picked up a 2004 Exmark Catalog today and it plainly show the picture of the metro with pistol grips. If the dealer won't help you out he's an idiot. Tell him what you are looking for and tell him to order it if he doesn't have it in stock.

    Try the Hustler. What don't you like about it? we are talking walkbehinds here right? YOu can get the standard with 15hp or 17hp for less than the Super 23/25hp ones. Same controls just smaller engine and tires.
    Snapper also has a nice control system called a loop grip. works like pistol grips only a different shaped lever and very easy speed and tracking adjustment. Also easy hight adjustment on the floating decks. I think Toro has fixed deck models with pistol grips maybe floating too.
    try to get a demo on the hustler with a bull rider They're great.

    Here's a pic of the standard from the hustler websight.
