    I can get an MTD 32" wb for around $2000 at the local Northern Tool. Anyone have any experience with MTD or YardMan equipment?

    i've had a few cub cadet commercial hydro w/b's (MTD) traded in, not bad machines or starters.

    easy to get parts if needed.

    MTD, Yard Machines, CTP (Lesco/MTD), White, Cub Cadet, TroyBilt, Ryobi and a few others all are owned by MTD.
    Some of the above named divisions produce a marginally good product for commercial use, the other divisions are basically home owner stuff.
    To my knowledge, the only companies out of the above that are currently producing commercial grade equipment are MTD, Cub Cadet, and Lesco (CTP). Basically you have to decide if you want your machine to be Red, Yellow or Green, that is about the only difference.
    Go with Exmark ... you would be better off ... JMHO
