    At the small engine warehouse under commercial mowers they have the drive unit, the deck and the wheels for a 32 inch hydro w 14hp for $1,400 + shipping. Does anybody recognize what make it is? Any good?

    I also looked and pondered about one of these. I almost drove up there to get a good look at one, and from here in Ole Miss it would have been a long journey. :confused:

    I ended up buying a Scag 36" belt drive walk behind. I feel like I did the right thing.:D

    I think they're made by Great Dane I heard??? They are a single drive hydro like the Ferris single hydro. They have brake bands to turn with like a belt drive. Just from what I can see in the pics on the website I would not want one but thats just my opinion. I'd rather get a good used quality name brand one for that money. Some things are good and cheap but if I had to make a guess, I'd say this one is just cheap. Look at the other items this guy sells, the lawn tractors for instance, they're the cheap MTD ones.
    But I could be totally wrong, so don't take my word for it, thats just an observation by looking at a picture.
