    I am looking at buying a 36" scag hydro. There were two or three in the paper last weekend. The only mowers I have had are a belt 48" scag and a
    36" belt exmark.

    What are some things i should look for when i inspect a used hydro?
    Thanks fellas,

    oil leak make sure the fittings are clean no oil dirt build up. Hours maint? hydros are the best/ you will hate belt drive once u go hydro. Fluid level filter. not much you csn do other than use them. do they stick or are they slow.

    I haven't looked at them yet, but maybe if I have time this weekend. I'll give them a run around and check them out. Thanks, John
