Velke HC 36” runs and feels almost eXactly like a Tracer. Same synthetic based twin pump/wheel motor system. Almost identical controls. Basically a 36” Tracer w/even less grease points, wider tires and ability to sit on handlebars and Bigger Engine
None of the 36" wb's get the premier decks, so forget 7 iron, velocity.....
If I was buying a 36"wb today, it would be either the ferris fw25, or scag swzt. I checked out alot of wb's a few yrs ago when buying my wb and really liked those models. I like the scag deck height system better then the ferris, but the engine, and hydros on the ferris better.
If your decide on the Deere I have 2 of the 36a we had to get for an hoa that then Had a management change and we were walked out the door. Think one has like 180 hrs one it and a bagger. Would love to sell if you’re interested. Still use one but the other has sat all year.
