    I am considering an Exmark hydro WB maybe next year. I see you make a 52" in the Turf Tracer and the Turf Tracer HP. and I am wondering what the differences in the two are? frame size? track width? engine options? electric clutch? overall weight? etc... :confused:

    I am not decided on a 52 or a 48 but I had these questions. Also, how are the belts kept tight on your machines ? Spring tensioners or manually adjusted tensioners?

    the hp has a slightly smaller frame and no electric clutch if i remember right. i think it also has smaller wheels. there are smaller engines on the hp i think 17 or 19 is the highest available while 23 is the highest hp engine on the turf tracer. i dont know how many belts but i think it is 1 and i dont know about the springs or tensioners.
