    Ok I am pretty new to the business, I have been working part time for about 6 months. I currently used a 48" bunton w/b it’s a belt drive and is about 8 years old. I have decided to get a 36" w/b I really like the exmark hydro but am not sure which direction to go any advice would be appritiated.
    btw I found a 6 month old barely used 36" metro for 2grand I know its a belt drive but is this a good deal?

    I have heard of guys getting the metro for 1995 new. I would go with the viking if I were to spend the money on a 36 or a toro fixed deck. a viking is I think around 3500 or so new.

    from what i hear, the hydro is the way to go. but for some of us a belt is the only thing in the budget. just go with what your budget allows and goodluck with everything.

    go with your budget and stay within limits. Belts will work but hydros are nice. Once you have hydro you never go back.Our looking for a smaller deck or just good deal????
