    i found a metro 36 floating deck with bagger that looks fairly new (supposedly not used commercially) + redmax trimmer all for $1275

    or i can drive a bit and get a single hydro quick36 and after gas it will be around the same price as the metro. both are around 3 to 4 years old i think.

    i've used a quick 36 but never a belt drive. with the light amount of work i have mowing wise cutting in wet conditions may not happen to much.

    i'm wondering how much a pain in the arse its gonna be to maneuver a belt drive, specifically the reverse assist..?

    If they're in similar condition. I'd go for the Metro parts are going to be a lot easier to get a hold of for it, and they are not to hard to maneuver reverse assist.
