I demoed the JD GS30 listed on the used equip. page today. They really are nice little machines. The only question I have is are the fixed decks a pain? and do the fixed decks seriously limit the versatility of the machine? I know all the gear/hydro debate. These specific machines are priced right and I live close by so there is no freight. I just have NO experience with walkbehinds. I see these as good machines for my business IF the fixed deck is not a real issue. Any advice, comments, Suggestions?
