    Been giving this some thought for a while ....
    Was considering the quick 36, by the time, I buy the mower and step saver and pay to have it delivered the $2195 price is no longer cheap.
    It's more like $2,700 why walk or stand when you can sit on this

    It's actually a fabricated deck web site has it mixed up..
    Most of the lawns I'll be doing are residential little hills involved, so transmission won't be problem....
    Feel free to share your thoughts ..Joe

    i wouldnt even demo it. 12 gauge wont hold up to the every day abuse of mowing. plus i believe the EZT isnt that great. correct me if i'm wrong.

    I have the Zoom 1534 for some back yards. It gets about 3-4 hours a week and works great. If you are the only one running it and you are careful it should work fine for you.

    I wouldn't use it 20 hours a week but for short use it would be fine.

    I'm mowing part time, so maybe 7 hrs a week if that...
    I don't expect it to perform like Gravely, it is what it is a mini ZOOM...Joe

    I'm not a quick fan but between the two I would much rather have the Quick36. That ariens is a homeowners model. It won't hold up long, once the dealer finds out your using it commercially no warranty. If your gonna spend $3K why not buy a used commercial Z?

    Been there, the ones at local dealers usually have major hrs on them and ''LOOK WELL BEATEN UP'' they ask way to much....$3,000 wouldn't get me the tire..

    You don't have to buy from the dealer down the street. Search around and you can find some good deals for that price range. Might have to drive a couple hours but you'll be getting a much better machine.
