    they are the same as the Lesco versions. I have used the lesco hydros. Solid machines. Stripe great!. No worries. If it is in good condition, go for it. These machines are pretty standard by design, so they are easy to rebuild or find parts for if something gives.

    Exactly what the previous LCO mentioned. It's pretty much the new Lesco. Solid machines and parts are ready available. They have a really nice vacuum which results in a nice cut. I'm assuming it's a fixed deck as I don't think they made an adjustable deck, that's the only flaw I see.

    Pretty good price, great machines with great components.
    I have the Lesco version.

    Seems like a good deal as long as everything about it checks out good

    I think you're lying. Now if you posted a pic of your new mower on here so we can see it then we'll believe you. :D :laugh::laugh:

    I think you'll like the mower a lot. I'm curious as to the controls. I'm thinking pistol grip. Snap a pic and post it.
