    So I just bought my trailer today... so excited. Loading my 36" was a PITA getting it in and out of my truck bed. So I have my clients all together - 15 for next year. I want to save a little time and invest another $1000 on top of the $1500 I did earlier this year for $2500 total on a hydro walk behind 48" mower. Good plan?

    Looking at an 01' Turf Tracer. Homeowner-owned. 200 hrs, 17hp kawi, really good condition, sulky, bag, 48" cut, etc. etc... Sound like a good deal? Really interested and would love to get some feedback saying go ahead and get it. (don't lie though, haha)

    same here. After owning a belt drive and then trying out a hydro I will NEVER own another belt drive again. Go for it!!!!

    why? there can't be that much difference...
    so it's a unanimous "go for it"?
