    Been awhile since I've used them, but I seem to remember my dealer saying it was lower quality wear parts and the engine.

    and not specific to this machine, commercial usually means heavier gauge steel, high hour rating drive components, bearings in place of sleeves and a so called commercial grade engine. From complaints I've read here some commercial grade engines aren't lasting as long as a homeowner's powerplant.
    Grease fittings and rebuildable component sub parts used to mean something but I see a lot of "maintenance free" parts advertised on even the upper end machines. In other words you're on your own unless someone with actual experience with that grade of machine is willing to contribute:D

    hey john... the hydros on the mb are new and walker has been waiting on more field test reports before listing it as commercial grade. that plus 18hp is border line for commercial mowers.

    happy politically correct holiday season! :waving:
