    I have a 36 pro line with a worn trans. I was wondering if it is possible to buy the hydro parts and convert it over instead of a belt/gear? Has anyone done this? Any ideas. Or am I just hopelessly dreaming again! LOL

  2. $2500 + labor and other parts vrs $4000 for brand spanking new mower.

    Hydro wont fit on the same power frame as the belt drives.

    LGF says not practical. eventhough I dunno the numbers, I'll bet he's right.

    a lesco 48-hydro, 15 KAW/electric start can be had for $3.5K.

    think about it.
