I am in the market for a 36 hydro w/b. I looked at the gravely 34z today and it was tempting but I think I'll hold off on the speed-get a bigger mower later-and get a 36 now for all the slopes and different terrain. I am just starting out. I need versatility first. Anyways, I went to the husqvarna dealer today. There 36 looked pretty good -a little jerky at first. Could anyone give me some advice on this model or another good 36 w/b. I don't want pistol grips so any-other options are good(unless I can be convinced other-wise). I was looking at the toro 36" t-bar w/ float deck- I don't believe it comes in fixed. Thanks for the help.
