    The price of the trailer seems high, but prices differ throughout the country.

    Sounds like a lot of money for a 36, even with the ECS, the floating deck and the 15 horse engine. My Metro is fixed deck, pistol, and 12.5, cost me $2,300. Granted there's a difference, but 12.5 is really plenty for that model.

    Maybe you should think about going with a hydro drive machine as long as you're at it. 15 horsepower will surely drive it just fine and you'll be amazed at the difference in performance, especially when it comes to the soreness in your forearms that comes with a belt-drive machine. Might cost you a grand more, but well worth it.

    Can you demo one of each?
