    What kind of properties do you have? Are you totally settled on a gear-drive unit? I had a 36'' toro gear drive and on the smallish lots that I mow the belt drive was a pain and got old real fast.

    It sounds like you are looking to buy something used so I would look for a 48'' hydro walk-behind in good condition with low hours. The hydros have instant reverse and do less damage to the turf than the gear-drives.

    if it's one of the older bunton bullets floating deck machines, P.O.S!!!! More service bulletins then you can imagine!!

    Plus....GOOD LUCK getting parts and service!!! I stuck with Bunton as long as I could. No support from the top down.
