Hey everyone, this is my first post so I will try and make it quick. Since I have aquired more equipment than I really need I am getting rid of my 61" Great Dane Surfer.(I have 2 Steiners with 60" decks also) Anyway, I am thinking about getting a 36" to 48" walkbehind. I know everyone says hydro is the way to go but are belt drives really that bad???? I have somewhat narrowed down my search to a Ferris UltrabeltGD or a Bob-Cat Classis Pro Gear-Drive. These are both available at the same place I deal with for my Steiners. Great place to deal with, never a problem. Been dealing with them for over 20 years. Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
