    I am looking at a 50" or 52" (i cant remember which) Husq. hydro, electric start, 19hp Kaw WB. It has 150-200 hrs on it and I know the people that own it. They are asking $2400.00 which includes an almost new Pro Slide. How does the price sound on it? Also, I have heard mixed opinions about husqvarna WB's. I know every brand has its ups and downs but just wanted to get some other opinions.

    We have a Husq. 15hp-48" belt-driven WB with ETS. Got a price ($900.00) we couldn't pass up. Cuts as good as most and Kawasaki engine is the same as you will find on other brands. Sounds like a decent price. Try offering $2000.00 and stand firm and see what that gets you. Husqvarna's commercial mowers are good equipment. We run Exmark equipment also and it performs almost as good.

    That would be a 52" 19hp floating deck walk behind. They have individual pumps and wheel motors. Good deck belt life. No hydro issues. comfortable hand controls. Flat deck with good cut quality. Very solid mower. The only downside that comes to mind, they are a bit front heavy. (a little tough to go up over curbs, front end want to go "downhill" on steep side hills) All things considered, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Good Luck.

    WB means "walk behind mower".
