My dealer offered a "new" discontinued 13hp single hydro w/b for $3200...not a HydroCut. I had originally went in thinking 36" belt for budget and application reasons, and he kept steering me back to this, even though he does carry Toro and Bobcat as well. Has anyone used these mowers, and if so, is this a good deal? I've got some slope to contend with, and I was told this particular setup, while not perfect, was much better than a belt drive. He had a Hydrocut sitting right next to it, but for some reason, he said the 48" deck did better on slopes. If that's true, I do like the idea of a bigger deck. Any input would be welcome.
