    I found a hydro walk behind w/ the kawi engine & 36" deck for sale for $3000. It only has 240 hrs & comes with a velke. It looks like it's hardly been used no rust or scratches.

    yes, thats a good deal.

    Would buy that it a heart beat if it ran and drove and cut.

    I don't like pistol grips but with a Velke its a good buy.

    FYI Scag has promotional pricing right now.

    scag may have promotional pricing but they arent giving away 36" hydros for 3 grand.

    you cant even get a belt drive for that.

    Pistol grips are the way to go on a 36" for the kinds of things a 36" is best for. Ditches, hills, under prickly bushes.

    If you want cushy hand controls...you're going to want at least a 44" or 48" anyway.

    Scag has failed many times over at making hand controls for hydro walk behinds that work worth a dang (other than pistol grips)

    Does anyone recall the VPRO? holy moly what was that monstrosity?

    It did work ok...for short people, on a 52" with a velke... try using it while walking? or taller people? or for anything like hills, ditches etc??? omg... I think they only tested it on flat ground.

    Not a bad deal. If it had a battery I would have said someone left the key on and the hour meter advanced.

    Perhaps you should read. Didn't say they were. Said its a good deal with the Velke.

    Was giving info in case he wanted bigger or somebody was in the market for new.

    As far as pistol grips, you can have them. Ill take a Ferris/Snapper Pro with the cruise control bar all day. Nothing easier to use, IMO.

    I run Ferris Evos.

    Last I looked (20 seconds ago to refresh my memory)
    Ferris and snapper use P-P-Pistol grips on their walks behinds.

    And? We have an Evo. Doesn't have anything to do with their wb's.

    Better check again. There's a cruise bar. There are grips underneath but not true pistol grips like that Scag. Perhaps you should read/watch/or actually use one.

    I purchased the mower. The only thing I can find wrong with it is the tracking & neutral needs to be adjusted.
