    I don't think you are going to find a new WB for less than $2500.....You might get close with a belt drive and a 36" cut with any brand....

    If you go used...the possibilities are only as endless as there are mowers for sale...I just sold 1 36" scag, and two gravely pro 40's for $500 each...

    that's an easy one.

    You can get a brand-spankin' new Quick 36 hydro with a 16 Kawasaki and electric start for $2595.

    Friends don't let friends use belt-drives...

    the local dealer aint ever heard of quick 36 when i mentioned it to him. are you the mfg? can you give me more info or a demo. im lookin to buy 4-5 wbs in spring.

    also. i like to stick to all one brand. all the z's are walker, all 2 cycle are stihl. im lookin for good quality, long lasting with minimal repairs. something easy to work on if needed. we do all repairs, trucks and equip in house. at the same time im on a budget. whats the warranty?

    :hammerhead: All we ever used for a long time was belt drive walk behinds and we never ever had a problem out of them. Our current 36" scag is belt driven and it pulls my 245# self around just fine.
