    The above mower is for sale in my area. It's got the offset 52 inch deck. Does anyone out there have any experience with this type of mower? It's got the H bar handles. How does this style compare to the pistol grip machines?

    I'm thinking of selling 2 48's for it. What is a machine like that in excellent condition worth?

    Thanks

    The '99 model is Alot Better than the New Design 2000-'04 T-Bar Floaters.

    I Prefer the Pistols...Especially if it's a Hydro...The '99 T-Bar Floaters were Not a Bad Unit, Nothing Spectacular...Does it Look Like This ?

    But this one is in mint condition. It's a homeowner's mower. I was shocked how clean it was. I'm basically trying to get rid of the 2 48 wb's I have to upgrade to one larger walk-behind. It seems like the T handle would be easier on the wrists. Is that not the case? Also, with the off-set deck, it seems that the mower would be easier on the areas that are trimmed every time, i.e. trees, etc.

    Also, does it stripe well?

    Thanks.
