    What is better has been posted to death...who makes the better unit is argueable as well. As far as I am concerned, belt drive units just plain suck and make great boat anchors.

    Hydro is the best. And around here Encore is the most popular with ferris being the next most popular. In a 36" cut Encore whips the ferris in my opinion.

    You are 100% correct. I'm not going to get into the debate between what mower is better. Do a search and you should get 3-4 days worth or reading. Now, that being said, I run Bobcat mowers. Do I like them, YES. Are they the best, Maybe...maybe not.

    eXmark turftracer hp 48", 52" twin hydro, ECS, they are the BEST selling wb in the US. It must have a reason to earn that spot. I got a 52" for 6 years now still cutting and make money.

    Dido! I have a belt drive 36" but it is the biggest PITA! I will never buy another belt drive again. Yeah they are cheaper, but OMG! they suck!
