Which Walk behind?

At the end of last year I purchased a Z500 60" 27 kohler(only 1.8 hrs) mounted a exmark roller as well, with the intention of mowing my own yard 1 acre and a bunch neighbors for some cash on the side. Unfortunatley it doesnt look like time will permit... So I am looking into buying a walkbehind for just my own property.. I am looking at 48" or 52" Scag, TOro and Exmark..

I dont want hydro, gear is good enough. Do I need to have a floating deck or is fixed ok?

Any help on machine and prices will be greatly appreciated....

Jajwrigh,

I just got off the phone with a local exmark dealer. He said they are on promo for 2,799. Its a fixed deck, Gear with ECS....

I guess thats a good deal.....

Yes, that is a good deal. I currently have that exact machine. It is awesome. The ECS, is very easy to operate, far better than pistol grip controls. The floating decks are nice also but for your own lawn you should be fine with a fixed deck.

$2,000-$2,500 for a 48 in walkbehind. If you spend more than that.........be sure to use K.Y otherwise it's gonna hurt.

I found a metro with a Kohler and ecs for 2599.... Should I bring lube or is that a good deal?

Also my Z500 is for sale on ebay....
