    Hello everyone. I am looking for suggestions on a 36 walkbehind. I am looking for something that not going to break the bank. It can definatly be belt driven. I looked at the Quick 36 information and I am looking for other alternatives. This machine will get 2-3 hours per week on average that si why I am not going with a new Scag hydro 36 or something similar. Any suggestions would be great. I have just about all the dealers in my area.

    I have a 36" gravely wb with pro-steer. Love it well built and did not break the bank.

    thanks for the responses. I was under the impression that the Exmark walkbehinds were fairly expensive is this correct? I am a big fan of Scag machines, I have been quoted for a 36 belt drive left over a price of 2850. Is the Exmark competitive with this or is it much less? I was wondering if there are any 36 inch belt driven walkbehinds out there that are around 2000-2400. If they are over say 2500 I would just go with another Scag since they have served me well. Anyone know if Toro is in that same price range? thanks again for the assistance.

    The Red Hawk mowers are very decent for the money. There are a lot of them being sold around my area by several large dealers.

    You can get a 36" 15 Hp for less than $2000!
