    I recently started looking at 48" walk behinds (belt drive) for my 1 to 1.25 acre lawn. First I checked out the Exmark Metro and was pretty impressed. Not wanting to jump the gun I checked out the Encore Premier, and the Husky 4815 at a dealer 1.5 miles from my house. I liked the husky but not quite as much as the Exmark, but 1.5 miles to the dealer won out, and I ordered a 2004 with him. Doing a little more research here at LS and elsewhere, I see the blade speed for Husky is considerably lower than the Metro. 15,800 compared to 18,700 I think. Has anyone on the sight used the Husky and got a poor cut due to low BTS? Any other likes or dislikes about Husqvarna belt drive walk behinds would be much appreciated also. I have a strange feeling I should have went with the Red instead of the Orange.
