    whatever you do DO NOT BUY A HUSKY.. if you have to stay under 4 the lesco is probaly your best bet for a hydro.. other than that the only other really big name out there for a hydro and around 4 is ExMark Viking 48" for about $4600.. if not go used

    I Bought a 2004 48" eXmark Turf Tracer HP for $2000. and I love it. I now have no problems mowing steep banks or in wet grass definitely the best walk behind I have ever used. I would definitely go with an eXmark

    I run a 48 lesco float deck and its a solid well built machine. This thing lays down a very nice and clean cut. It lays down stripes on St. Augustine.
