    Yeah, I thought it sounded pretty good. Not very familiar with the commercial side of Cub Cadet, but I've been searching the forums and overwhelmingly what has been said on them is positive. At $3500 not sure how I can go wrong. I really liked the dealer too. Best I've been to so far. That's a selling point right there. And only a couple miles from my house.

    Cub Commercial=Lesco=MTD PRO.. All are the same machine.. And they are good equipment. That's not too bad a deal.

    Thanks for the input. I appreciate it. If I don't like it, it's inexpensive enough that I can purchase another one and keep the CC as a backup.

    Make sure you getting the one below. It has the floating deck and the command cut which I think allows you to change cutting height with a lever.
    They don't seem to offer any other hydro then the one listed below. They use to offer one like you mentioned.

    HFF1748 $4199

    17 HP* Kawasaki V-Twin OHV Engine,
    * As rated by Kawasaki.
    48" Floating/Fabricated Deck.
    • Professional grade Kawasaki V-Twin OHV engine provides the strength for year after year of tough, reliable power and durability.
    • 48" floating fabricated deck with Command Cut System. The 10-gauge steel top is reinforced at the spindle areas.
    • Fully welded, one-piece engine deck is tougher than the competition's bolted design. Constructed of strong 7-gauge steel with no bolts or hardware to vibrate or loosen over time.
    • The wide rear stance provides greater stability on hills.
    • Ergonomically designed dual hydrostatic controls make this unit the easiest walk behind to use in the industry.
    • 5-gallon fuel tank capacity provides for longer running time and increased productivity.

    Does it have the pistol grips turning grips or the new style? On the web site they , at least I did'nt see a pistol style hydro. You may be getting a 1 year old machine.

    Yeah, it's the older one. Pistol grips. Fixed deck. It's the H1748. Not the HF or HFF (my mistake in the first post). However, it does have the electric start.

    Pistol grips don't bother me, and neither does the fixed deck, since most evey lawn is crazy flat and St. Augustine grass. (Florida ya know)

    Still think $3500 is a fair price even being a year old? Considering what I've seen other 48" dual hydros go for with fewer HP and recoil start, it seems pretty good to me.

    its a good deal, I paid 3200.00 back in 2001 for my 48" hydro, pull start. Plus your getting one of the better machines on the market.
