    I planning to buy a new walk-behind and would like your input. I only need it for a couple of fenced yards and plan to use it for a back up. Which one???

    Here is what I am considering so far:
    Honda 36" Commercial Hydro (discontinued) ($2500)
    Bobcat 36" gear drive ($2550)
    Billy Goat 33" ($1600)
    Troy Built 33" ($1600)
    Exmark Metro 36" ($2900)

    Honestly I would go with the Bob-Cat from personaly experiance. Either that or if you have a gravely dealer around i would go with the Gravely. Either one would cut great and last you forever.

    I run both Bobcat and Exmark. When the red machine craps out, a green machine will be taking its place! I voted for Bobcat as well!
