well i hate to clog up the threads but i have lots of questions and ideas in my head. other than slipping in wet grass or going up steep hills, and general wear on the belts... what are some disadvantages with belt driven mowers? i have heard that they use less power since they dont have to pump fluid as the hydro mowers do. i ask just to prepare what to look out for. thanks. this has been a very cool place. lots of my questions are answered. one more thing. i have a f250 but no trailer. i know they are cheap but i may try to drive my mower into my truck to go from place to place until i can find a garage and trailer of my own.
