I was looking at one of these tonight and wondering what your feedback is on these mowers. The one I was looking at had a 44" deck. I cut about 3 acres of grass and wondering if this would hold up for many of years. The other question is about the drive train. The dealer was telling me that they make a hydro drive and a hydraulic drive. He mentioned that the hydraulic drive would require less maintainance. I was just curios to what the maintainance would be. Please give me your advise and input. Thanks a bunch.
