    I'm looking at buying my first commercial mower. Any ideas, I was thinking a 48" ECS Metro with a sulky. Also what would that Metro cost?

    I talked to one of my local dealers in Cincinnati OH and he Wanted $3,000. That's a big differance.

    the belt drive wont really carry a sulkey.. just to let you no, you can probaly pick up a exmark viking (hydro) for about $4500 new at least thats the price around new england

    I have been looking a t purchasing a 48" metro for several weeks... I am trying to figure out if I should get the standard metro with ECS or if I should go ahead and get the metro HP...

    Please let me know your thoughts...

    This isn't much to compare to but i am upgrading from a 42" Caraftsman Rider. (Small Buisiness and I'm only 14). And that was floating but is still scalped a good amount. Does the floating actually help?

    the floating is not an anti-scalp "tool" it just makes it so the deck can move with the land, it s not just ficxed to the mower(fixed deck).
