    I have the 36" Ferris Hydrocut with the 13hp Kawasaki. Its very fuel efficients, and the cut is very good. The quick adjust for the height is nice but is not a floating deck. I also find the front end very light on hills and easily lifts the front castors up. The other thing it isn't a floating deck. I probably have around 40-50 hours on it since it was puchased at the end of june last year. Overall I am happy with it for the amount that it gets used.

    look seriously into the exmark 36. The thing is a tank! I have been cutting with it since 00 and there has been nothing wrong with it. Change the oil and grease it and it will run the belts right off the thing. :weightlifter:
