well i demoed a brand new 36 inch huskey hydro wb, and ets controls. this is the first walkbehind ive ever used or tested. we only have a huskey dealer here. the exmark dealer is 2 and a half drive as is the graveley, hustler dealers. so it came down to the quick or huskey. the only pros i could think of with the quick was that its lighter, a few hundred dollars cheaper, and shorter. so i take it out and fire that 15 horse kawi up engage the blades and throttle up. i take off(very slow mind you) and blaze through two yards over twice as fast than the 21 incher. the cut was very smooth, clean and fast. the controls were very responsive and easy to use, although reverse is sorta stiff. this machine left awsome stripes, although not very straight ones(yet). i ordered a mulch kit for it and will let you now how that goes when i get it. so far i am very pleased with this machine although it only has 2 hours on it. oh yeah did i mention that i bought the mower? its was brand new for 3399.00. now all i need is a pro-slide. i will get some picture for you asap.
