    BOP is out of business DC is out of business. How many parts on these are universal. Belts and some cables and the major components like hydro, engine etc. but have fun cross referencing

    No idea but Gary’s other mower, the Sarlo 34” has vanished from existence in less than a year. So he’s 0-2

    Walk Behind cut is similar to many-Before you buy I would make sure you can find parts available to you. It would bite to buy, and not be able to get the part or guidance needed to keep it going. You can take my reply with a grain of salt..holmes

    There a good amount of BOP/Lesco mowers on trailers here, not sure of your location.. but they were popular here until a few years ago.. when they sold out etc.. someone will clarify better

    All the old notes at BOP's website regarding what parts are compatible/incompatible are gone now. An issue you might run into is if this Briggs powered Q36 is using the older hand controls. W/ no pictures to show you, it becomes challenging to explain what is what. Will guess there is no hour meter?

    I've only run Q32s. The two longer blades have some slight to moderate advantages over the Q36's three shorter blades...particularly in Northern/cool season grasses & crabgrass, not to mention wet/moist/dewy conditions.

    W/ basically zero support and having to forage for used parts that may or may not be compatible...I'm pretty sure I'd pass on this.

    Thanks for the replies all, so it passes on the eye test, but the main concern is the lack of parts and support it seems. I've YouTube some vids to get an idea of how they are, some comments mention how they would never part with their bop etc.

    The Quick 36 was the mower I started my biz out with. In dry conditions, the cut was perfectly fine. When dewy or wet, the small tunnel deck would pack full.
