I just bought this nice little Metro HP 48" 15 Kaw with 16" Tires and Yes ECS.
This mower is so smooth i cant wait to take her out mowing. If you cannot get a hydro i would strongly suggest getting this little baby.
Oh before i forget! The striping roller is on order and so is the Accelerator Bagger the 6.2 with leaf extention.

I payed 3300 CASH. Its a lot better then the metro. It feels really good to operate.
I dont know what i'm going to mow with it but what ever it is i think i will enjoy it.

Oh the 16" tires pull a sulky alot better then the 13" on the metro.

John,

I just read a post from Terry in the Exmark forum about the 48" deck that stated the following:

"The walk behind roller for the Turf Tracer HP will NOT fit the Metro HP. No striping roller is available for the Metro HP at this time".

You mentioned that you ordered the striping roller, you might want to check with your dealer.

Looks sweet John and all to familiar to the one I have in my garage. I plan on see what can be done for my ECS handles this year. As I cant wait to rip them off and go back to piston. To many limitations IV found with them and it is a ***** to lift the front of the mower at speed if you see and obstacle you’re aimed at in an emergency with your arms in that position. But that 15 hp kaw is great I'm still amazed after no use for roughly 4 months I can go out and start mine in 1-2 pulls with out any trouble at all.

Ive had ECS since they came out. They do have some draw backs BUT i would not go back to pistol grips if christ told me to.
I do think they help when you pull back on a gear drive. Like i hav e found out with my new toy.

Nice mower John. I thought we almost had you ready to try a hustler this time. :grin Can we ask why you didn't get a hydro?
I guess I'm a power hog. I would want more than 15 hp on a 48"
