    Nice. I had to laugh though...the second shot looks like it has a canopy attached to the roll bar to keep the sun off of you.

    Do you like the ECS on the belt drive? Or have you not used the old style to compare to? I'd like to retrofit my metro with those. (retro my metro, hey that's good).

    thanks guys, my dealer had a big pre-spring sale so i picked it up for a good price.

    As far as the ecs goes, it has its pros and cons, its super comfy when mowing, but its alot harder to push down on to lift the deck when going over a rock or something. its def less strain on your hands then the old pistol grip mowers i used to run.

    What engine and deck size did you opt for? It looks nice but I agree with you 100% on the seat thing.

    Thanks for the help. I have a knot in a tendon of one hand and it causes what they call trigger finger. Also disc and nerve issues in upper back/neck. I know tyhe set up I have aggrivates them both. I'm thinking switching the controls will help. Really, I need a hydro, but I wanted to compare the two options. Thanks much.
