First of all I have done a search on this and has yet to give me the information that I am looking for. I have tested the gravely, husqvarna, snapper, toro and scag walk behinds in both hydro and gear. looking particuarly for the 36" but will float up to 42". So far the Husqvarna I like the best. Both hydro and gear. leaves nice lines, clean cut, easy to manuver. I would like to try the exmark but am reluctant to travel 250 miles to the nearest dealer that has one to demo. My question is has any one had any problems with the husky? Who makes the Husky? And What are the cons of a big pumpkin leading you every where? I am not here to see what is the best maching just if any one has had any problems. This is my first walk behind. mainly owned riders before and am trying something new. Thank you.
