    Check eBay and your classified ads. You may get lucky.

    The obvious question is, what size are your lawns?

    Also, you say something for around $1500 and NEW. If you're talking about a commercial walk behind, you're not going to find one.
    If you're lucky, you might find a 36" belt drive on sale for around $2000.

    I just purchased a Exmark Metro 32" for $1,800 it was a 2003 left over you might get lucky and still be able to find one. It cuts like a dream for all those places I cant get the rider. I picked the 32 because I also have a 48 and they take the same blades ;-)

    I would go with a 32" if that is all that you can spend

    Make sure to talk to your dealer about any old models that he has in the back that he wouldn't mind parting with for $1500. You might be surprised at what he has
