    Has any one used a lesco mower. If so what do you think of them. If you could buy a used hydro or a new belt drive what would you do?:usflag:

    I run a lesco belt drive 36". I bought it used and it has never been a problem so far for me. It starts on the first or second pull everytime, has plenty of power to pull me (205 lbs), and never bogs down or has trouble cutting. I have kept it serviced like it should and it treats me pretty well. What type of lesco are you looking into?

    I have belt drives and have never had any problems. If i had to make that purchase all over again I would go Lesco!:weightlifter:

    I was looking at a Lesco 48" belt drive. I am just startstarting and have nothing yeat. The lesco seems like it may have a better price than some of the others. I may be able to buy a new one instead of used. I an starting small and trying to keep my overhead down.

    Never used a Lesco but hydro is the way to go on what ever brand you like.
