    Anyone out there own one? I am looking at getting a new one for 2799+tax. Is this OK, and are they worth it. They really tried to push me towards the hydro, but I can barely manage paying for this. But I am tired of the 21 in. I can't do a rider due to hills. And I have some rough land I want to mow occasionally so I wanted something durable.

    Anyone like theirs?

    I'm curious, as that will likely be my next WB....only I'd DEFINATELY go Hydro.

    That 40" seems about perfect.

    The big thing I like is the compact length. WAY shorter than a 36" and shorter yet than a 48".

    Plus the complete toughness of a Turbo-Force deck. Almost seems rediculously overbuilt for a little 40" deck!

    Let me know how you like the cut!

    Don't worry about going hydro. The t-bar is so easy to use as a belt-drive, that it's not worth spending the extra money. Plus, lower long term maintenance costs.
