    Yea they are single hydro so you have to muscle it around a little bit. Once you've logged a few hours you get a rythm going and turning it become easier. Mine only gets used about 5 times a week now but a few years ago I was cutting 10 yards a day and it can wear you out. Mine has been great so far to about 300 hours with only a few stupid electrical problems with the blade engage switch. Easier to adjust deck height compared to most walk behinds and the 13hp kawi or whatever they come with is more than enough. It is what it is for a single hydro but price a dual hydro 36 and its hard to justify.

    Take a look at the new Snapper WB it is dual hydro and has a crank adjustment on deck and the price is less than $4K.
