    i just bought a 48" toro gear drive WB with a fixed deck and the 15 hp kawasaki. i haven't even picked it up yet because i haven't because i don't have a trailer yet (getting that around 11/1/03). anyway, i paid 2800 for mine. it was about 200 less with the 15 hp kohler. but everybody here convinced me to go with the kawasaki for power and less noise. lol.:cool:

    I think I've decided on the 36'' WB SCAG(Belt). But, in looking at the what SCAG had to offer, I noticed the SCAG 48'' Z Tiger Cub as well. I was wondering how difficult it would be to get this through fences. Any one out there have a problems ? I'm thinking that starting with the 36" WB would be more prudent but I can't help but think the Z would be nice.

    Depends on how much speed you get built up, and chain link is much more difficult to go through.:D

    When going through gates, all depends on gate sizes, if gates are wide enough, no problem. If gates are 36" you better have the w/b or 21" ready.

    So true, so true. My SW32 is a little monster. I call him "HECUBUS"!
