    Has anyone recently purchased a ExMark or Snapper 48" hydro floating deck walkbehind? Just looking for some ballpark figures on pricing. Thanks!

    I think your price paid is about right. I bought the same model last summer, but it was a demo. I think I recall the new one was close to $5,000. I paid $4,000 for the demo which supposedly had less than 100 hours on it. So far its been a good mower.

    The Snapper is a bit cheaper, but I don't think you can get em with an electric start anymore. Let me know if I'm wrong.

    So you can still get electric start on a 48" Snapper? According to their web site you can't. Those are great mowers for that price!

    At the beginning of this season I bought a new Snapper Pro Hydro 48" with the accutrack, and absoutly love it. I recently picked up several contracts all in the same housing development, and 9 of them have fences with 40" gates, so I went and got another Pro Hydro, but this one has a 36" deck. Both units are bullet proof. Next season I intend on getting another Pro Hydro with a 52" deck. These units are very well built, and have a great cut quality. The Kawasaki engines are smooth quiet operator, with awsome power. The engines on all of my equipment is Kawasaki except for the tractors, and I wouldn't have anything else. Good luck.
