Hey y'all, after going around to 3-5 dealers here, I think I have decided that I want to get either the, Snapper 36" hydro floating deck for $3900, or The Husqvarna 42" hydro floating deck with single lever height adjustment. $4200 and he will likely throw in a free mulching kit (since Kimco has it online for $4071.99). I would rather buy it from a dealer though. Anyway, the dealership here doesn't have the mower in stock and I really doubt they would order it in just so I could demo it first haha. Keep in mind, this is a place FILLED to the brim with good-ole-boys. Now I still haven't made it to the Exmark or John Deere places, but they don't make a 40-44" mower anyway, and I am trying to avoid getting a large 48" deck again. Its just not a good size for residential lawns (at least not for me some guys pull it off, but I don't know what they do about uneven ground or gates). Another note, I might be getting an old 4 wheel steering rider with like a 50" deck, so if I do this kind of reduces the need of a large cut walk behind mower for commercial and large country lots. But, I still don't think I want to go as small as 36". I have a 33" now, and its too small. I have a 48", and its too big haha. Seems like the 42" Husky is an obvious choice, but I am very careful about buying anything, especailly a $4k+ mower. Also, I don't really like the Toro 44" very much. Those 2 inches make a big difference in gating, and on my house a 44" won't fit through the gate. Any help would be be greatly appreciated.
