    i have been haveing some trouble finding a good gate mower.
    i can fit a 36 in most of these yards but they are all way to damn much $$$.
    atleast for a hydro they are and im done with belt drives!!!

    the quick 36 would be my #1 choice if it wasn't 39.5 wide < WTF is that all about ??? >

    anyway i have only been able to find a ferris 32 that seems allright.
    i can't buy it though the dealer screwed me out of 5K last time i delt with them.

    what other hydro 32's or cheap 36's are out there ?

    Scag still makes a 32" WB, we have two and they are rock solid units!! I think it is a better choice than the single hydro units.

    ya , i might be able to move to a 36 but i can't see paying 3K + for a 36.
    and like i said im done with belt drives.
    it will be used on atleast 19 lawns per week... maybe more
