    I have a 48 belt drive. Honestly, I would get something else. It cuts good. But it seems I am CONSTANTLY adjusting various things on it. Especially the wheel drive belts and brakes.
    The price of $2399 for the 36 is common.

    Quick 36 from Better Outdoor Products. Do a search on this site and you will see how happy people are with them.
    AND, they are hydro.

    i have a 36 inch husqvarna hydro walk behind, with the ets controls. im very happy with it. it cuts extremley smooth, and stripes awsome. if i had to pick a con about this mower it would be that the paint doesnt seem very durable. not that its falling off but it just doesnt seem as tough as it should. oh yeah it has the 15 horse kawasaki. i paid 3200.00 brand new.

    i recently bought a 52" Hydro W/B with about 150 hrs on it . I am happy with it. The height adjustment set up is a little shotty but I can fix that/beef it up. It has the 18 hp Kawasaki. I got the mower, pro-slide and bagger. The guy was asking $2900 for the mower.
