    I know its probably on here somewhere but here goes: What is a better model of walkbehind? Specs are listed below. I know it will be a debate but give me the pros and cons please.

    The specs are :
    36" deck, gasoline engine, able to collect clippings, easy to service, lightweight, how the height of deck is changed, the increments in the cutting height, a good strip kit needs to b e available (I am sure there is a universal but which is better), the size of the clipping basket.

    Thanks in advance,
    Justin

    What exactly are you asking? Do you have a model in mind?

    36" deck, gasoline engine, able to collect clippings, easy to service, lightweight, how the height of deck is changed, the increments in the cutting height, a good strip kit needs to b e available (I am sure there is a universal but which is better), the size of the clipping basket.

    I'll bite and say a few things:

    If you want light, check out a quick 36.

    If you want to change deck height easily, get something w/ a floating deck (not very light)

    Bagging is pretty limited on WB's, you're limited by the weight you can hang off the side of the machine.

    A gas engine and 36" deck--that I don't know if they do that!
