i have a lesco 36" belt drive pistol grip walk behind with no problems at all and have never had a problem. it comes with a nylon grass catcher. these things retail for well over $3000 and i will sell it for $2000.i'm in north texas if you are interested pm me. once again it is only $2000. it has about 200hrs and it has a 13hp kawasaki engine on it. no hour meter but that would be my guess. thanks guys.
