    How do u like your Pro-V? Is it as toughly made as other Scag machines? Is it hard to stop when needed on hills and such?

    Remember---you can get ztr's for those prices. Hydro walks are for those who need them, not for those who can't afford to ride (and make more $$$ per hour).

    Some customers only want you to walk their lawn riding is not an option. I offer to take my ZTR but they want me to walk so I take out the Hydro I charge accordingly for the slower mow. I believe there will always be some market for the WB. I'm affraid what could be next is that I will need to compete with a 100 pound kid and a 21 inch walk behind mower because he is more earth friendly to their lawn. I am think this guy should get a goat.

    You may find (as has worked for me) that it's better to drop those customers.
    It's one thing if you have the time and extra space on the trailer but when you fill out the route it starts to cost money to do the trickier, or pickier properties. I look at it the same way as turning down lawns that are outside the designated mowing route.

    Sorry I would never pay that much for a hydro Walkbehind.
    Have you tried Lesco, I have 2 52 inch 19hp kawi that were under 4k, I believe 3699.00 will buy a 48 hydro(lesco)
