You'd Say this is a good deal too?

    I came across a 2010 model Lesco 36'' walkbehind dual hydro. Never been used, still on the sales floor. $2700, i talked the guy down to $2500. He said it's the last of the Lescos since JD bought them they had to quit making these machines. Anyhow i checked on these machines last year and they were around $4500-$5000. I think this is a good deal myself. I'm going back and forth deciding whether or not to do it. I don't currenly have 36", all I'm running is a 48" and a 22". I've been in the market for something in the middle. Was looking at the Better Out Door products, same 36" single hydro is same price as the this Lesco. Anyhow, I just wondering your thoughts, I think it's a good idea to ask around about these things before sinking the money. :) Thanks.

    IF you use the 21" a LOT ...

    That 36" will fit through some of the gates the 48" won't where you are currently using the 21",
    it will probably save you considerable time carrying all three on the trailer and use the 36" instead
    of that 21" but it would also somewhat displace the 21"

    Like I said, It's a great price for a brand new machine. So, I'm leaning towards buying it.

    thats a killer deal. You should grab it if you can use it. That little 21 will be a mower that just sits around once you use the 36.
