    Hello, STILL SNOWING in N.Y. I can't wait to get out there and mow mow mow. I"am in the research and information gathering mode. My turf ranger 92 / 60 inch deck is working but continues to show age and breaks down at times. Only 600 hours and needs some tlc. I mow part time and had about 20 accounts last year. My back up is a John Deere Gt 235 48c in deck and my toro 21 deck had a blow out. I picked up a sarlo 26 used but can't get a bagger for it. I have a few customers that require grass to be bagged and removed. Some in town and some out of town customers. Looking for a quaility commerical walk behind. Would love to buy hydro and or a z turn rider but does not look like this year. Still searching for the best all around exmark mower under $4000.00. Ideas please.

    If $4000 is your limit, then the Metro is the way to go. But for $500 more you could have the 48" Viking Hydro. If finance is the problem, maybe consider seeking a little help. It may be better in the long run to do so. Check the link below. These people are very good to work with.

    36/48 only you know your accounts.
    48 fixed deck would not work for me as I have too many hills. Again what will work for you.
    I love my 48 Metro BUT!!!! It was my first mower and I did not know the benefit of Hydro than. We are up to 7 WB and no other one is belt. Hydro all the way.
    Oh and by the way----HYDRO---HYDRO!!!----HYDRO
