    Quick 36 Fox knowing you'll never do more yards than just every once in a while or a 36" Lesco with allegedly only 20 hours? Quick 36 fox is $1600 and the Lesco owner is asking $1350 obo. Thanks for any input you might have.

    The lesco is a good mower. I had a 48 fixed deck for about a year and really liked the way it cut. With only 20 hours it is basically new. I would lean toward that one.

    You might check into the new Redhawk mowers that have got a lot of play here on LS recently. You can buy a brand new 36" for around $1850 in my area.

    Out of the two you listed, I would buy the Lesco.

    Here's the thing though...with the Quick 36, I'd get a hydro.

    The Quick 36 hydro is available brand new in 2 models. One is $1995 and the other is a super duty model for $2295. I am not a big fan of Briggs and Stratton engines. They are fine for the little pushmowers for the homeowner, but, to put them to work I am not sure. The Lesco probably has a Kawisaki either a 14 or 15hp. The hydro is nice I am just not familiar with the Quick line.
