    Yea I remember those...I used to have a 61" Bunton BELT DRIVE, w/16hp, that thing would barely pull itself up a hill. Nobody could really handle the machine, b/c you had to be a body builder to muscle it around

    The 72" Scag Hydro's are big but no harder to use than a 36 or a 48--you just have to watch what you are doing! We use them daily for all residential work--virtually bullet proof, cheap to run, no tire marks, and one of the best leaf eating machines you could ever touch! 72's no longer made--too bad...
