    So we just bought that sweet 54" SWB off of ebay =). I don't know why no one told us about how awesome the thing is! I love the blade tip speed and the controls are fantastic! No more hurting finger knuckles and numb fingers!

    One MAJOR complaint, this thing doesn't come with a parking brake, I mean, is that even possible? I had to shell out 235.00 bones for one today for it at the dealer, and I don't like how it just catches the inside of the tires. I just am shocked that this was the most expensive walk behind on the market and it doesn't come with a parking brake! Whats up with that PJ?

    That SWB looks sweet !!
    Yes, we never offered the parking brake as standard equipment on the Hydro Walks, it has always been a option.
    We at one time looked at putting it on as standard equipment, but the mower was expensive enough as it was, and we decided not to add the cost to it.

    Thanks, its the one you looked up for me. I dont know how many hours are on it after using it today it seems the hour meter was broke. The darn thing is like new though. It didn't even have scratches on the anti scalping wheels! I put more scars on it today then it has had its whole life =).

    Anyway, After about 8 hours of cutting apartments with it today, I had to call Jim at Lyons and Lyons and tell him I would take the 54" he found. I need these machines on my trucks!

    Great product! Please tell the company they need to continue making them! He also found a 48 which we want, but with leaf season here and snow soon we need to invest too much in those items for us to pick up both =(.
