Im starting expanding my plowing business to mowing lawns. I already have an account for 3/4 acre. I need advice for the best equipment the dollar can buy. I've been looking at Zero turn mowers but dont know where to start. Im looking for a 52-60" mower.

The equipment is the cheapest part of this job! Do not cheat yourself. Think about it! Save 500 dollars on a mower that produces $50.000 a year. Buy quality
