I have been running a 36" Scag for a while now and am excited to get into something larger. I still want to stay with a walk-behind, but other than that I am at a loss. I have a bunch of them that I am considering, and my budget is $2200 and under. What is a good suggestion? And I am stuck with that budget no going over . I am looking at hydros and belts. I think belts are more commonly used and cheaper to run, but other than that I have no preference. I tried a hydro and though it was tough to drive... I thought it was really jumpy. I did like the reverse though, that was nice. What do you guys think I should be looking at? The machine is for next year. I need something 48"-60". It must stripe really well. It will be part-time, for about 16 accounts weekly (under 16 hours). They are fairly flat. A few "landscaping" hills - made to build the house and covered with grass, but nothing really major at all. Very few natural, large hills, and nothing I can't do with my scag belt drive. A few trees but again, not tons of them.
