I am in the market for a mid-size walk behind. Have had experience with belt driven models and am looking for a hydro for a little easier control. Right now I am looking at a Lesco 48" Hydro, 17hp, 2004, good condition, $2000. Should I wait for a Scag or an Exmark hydro to come along? I need 2 things - a great cut and superior striping. Should I just grab the lesco and set it up with a striping kit? or is it wiser to go with an exmark which is supposed to be a better brand? Or maybe you have better decision? Or advice? Staying with 54" or less walk behind please, no rider suggestions. Also, has anybody ever used http://www.qualityusedequipment.net/ to buy equipment? They have a bunch of nice Vikings but am a little weary of buying something online. They have an ad on this site, which is how I found them.
