    I know most of you hate this question, but if you could me out I would appreciate it.

    Ferris 36" Dual Hydro electric start w/ sulkie.....45 hours.......$3500

    36" is maximum size I want to go based on my accounts. I believe it's a 2010 model.

    I was looking at belt drives, but it would be nice to have the hydro.

    Let me know what youthink

    i don't know how much walkbehinds are brand new since i've never bought one so i can't tell you if the price is good but 45hrs is really low. It's practically brand new.

    Not bad, I priced out a hydro 36" by exmark and one by snapper pro, exmark was around 3750 and snapper pro was around 3500 new, depending on what sulkie it is you can figure any where from 100 to 350 for one, it would be a toss up but 45 hrs is not that much, its not really even broke in yet! I prob jump on that, best thing is that its hydro and not belt driven

    CJFDFF, Can you PM where you found the exmark. My dealers want over $5k for a new one.

    Thanks.
