    Narrowed down some of my choices"
    Exmark metro HP 36"
    Exmark metro HP 48"
    Exmark metro 48"
    Exmark metro 36"

    I need the mower to be versitile yet manageable. I have heard some horror stories about fixed deck mowers, what some of your opinions on these metros. Price does play a big role in my decision. Thanks guys

    I sold my 36" Metro and picked up a 48" Metro. I want the 36" back!!! It seemed to stripe much better and never dragged the deck. The 48" seems to dig if the lawn is uneven. If you have any gates to go through get a 36".
    If you want to save some $$$ try a Lesco. I have heard mostly good things about their walk behind mowers. Whatever mower you decide on get a floating deck for 54" or wider. If your lawns are flat don't even worry about a floating deck.
