    you can get a new machene for under $3000 if its a fixed deck belt drive. Exmark, Toro and Bob-Cat all make good machenes.

    The new Toro WB's have a 7 gauge deck. Also look hard at Wright, they are nice machines that are built well and have a great warranty.

    I have a 50 in Gravely belt drive, I bought about 5 yrs ago for around $2200. It not a hydro but it does a good job,I just use it for my yard. it may be better to buy somthing like this new insted of buying a used hydro unless you know they guy selling it to you and it has low hours.

    I would look for a 48" hydro with a 17hp, this size mower does good on the lawns we mow in this area (sw va) and are pretty common to find used for under 3k.
    I use gravely 17 hp kawasaki hydros in 48" .
    I would definetely go with a hydro, what ever you chose. deere, gravely, toro or exmark, there all good mowers.
    New your looking at about $4800

    This mower is new to me? Why do you give the nod toward this mower? Looks nice, for a good price.
