    Does anyone have any experiences they can share with the new Lesco floating deck hydro WB?

    I was at lesco last week and they gave me a great price on a 17kaw 48" cut. Only $3800. Thats about $1100 less than the price my Exmark gave me on an equally equiped Turf Tracer. My Lesco has a service tech, and shop. They promised me that all warranty work takes top priority. Sounds like a good deal.

    Does anyone have any experiences with this new mower, or the Cub floating Deck WB? I was going to wait untill over the winter to buy a machine. But with that kind of price, Im thinking of ordering now and using the next two months to get used to it for next season. Any help would be great.

    I looked at the 54" at a lawn show. Should give a good cut

    with deck connected to front axle, The 54 has a 19 Kaw.

    I have a 52" Lesco fixed deck well made, paid 3k 1997.

    I have a Lesco 60" wb floating deck. Only complaint I have is that it dosnt cut thick, tall stuff very well. It doesnt seen to discharge clippings well and gets over loaded and leaves clumps and strips. It does a great job this time of year. I use it a lot lately. Stripes well and has good power (Kaw 21 hp) and has good ground speed. My Scags & snappers (fixed decks) commercials do better in spring time.

    i love my 48 lesco Float H/D. Cuts very well and make sure you order a sulky and accelerator catcher.

    Any problems at all mechanically with the mower? Were you guys able to get good service after the sale from your Lesco?
