    The hydro will give you far fewer problems than the belt drive. Zero transmission problems with my walk behind. The advantage deck gives a much cleaner cut than their standard deck. Just put one on my Turf Tiger and it is vastly improved.

    The advantage deck not only improves the cut quality but also the blowing capabilities. If you're interested in getting a 36" I would definitely go with the hydro and they just increased the 14hp Kaw to a 15hp Kaw VTwin that looks very promising. I have a 36" hydro advantage with the 14hp and the cut quality at high speeds is the best I've ever seen.

    I PRICED A 36" HYDRO SCAG YESTERDAY AT $4100.00 WITH CATCHER IN NEW JERSEY. YOU ARE GETTING RIPPED OFF BUD.

    Ron: Not to condone Uniscape's sarcasm, but from what I've seen in pricing the Hydro's usually run $1,000 more than a belt driven. I run Scag hydros and agree with Woodlawn that the cut is the best! Slap on a Proslide and your in business! ;)

    NOT FOR NUTHIN SCRAPER...BUT HAVING A HYDRO OR A BELT DRIVE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CUT OF THE MOWER.
