I am not a professional in the lawn mowing industry, but I do take pride in my work, and I'm always looking for new ideas. Here are some pics of my personal lawn.

I'm using a 21" mower with Lawn Striper. Weed Eater edger and Shindawai 8510 backpack blower. I'd love to get a commercial-grade walk behind mower, but I think it would be major overkill for my relatively small yard.

I think one of those would be just right for you and it would last you forever.

I'm not familiar with it. Is it a walk-behind? I'll google it.

Thanks for the link. I like those mowers, but I bag my clippings, and the bags for those commercial mowers look gaudy and inconvenient. Are there any rear-bagging commerical walk-behinds on the market?

I agree with lazer z . a 36 would be perfect for your yard and would not be over kill by any means . I have mowed smaller yards with my 48 . I dont believe they make one with a rear bagger though . The side catchers work good and its not really a pain at all just takes some getting used to

I appreciate the compliment. I own an insurance and investment brokerage. I'd rather be mowing lawns, though.

The catchers hold a lot more than a bag on the 21" machines and they are very easy to empty.

Accelerators are also lighter than they look. The capacity is a bonus at clean up time. Easy on and off compared to 21" baggers.

Those are probably the best stripes I've seen with a 21. It must me just me, but I can't keep straight lines and I always get my diagonal angles way off. Lookin good, keep it up!

Man!! I'm glad we don't have Homeowners down here that can cut like that. Those stripes are awesome. I agree, I have never seen that good with a push mower. :dizzy::dizzy::dizzy::dizzy:
I would say you put the maintenance companies there to shame:laugh:

Thanks, guys.

Prez, I'm new, but from the pics I've seen, I'm a huge fan of your work.

a bigger mower is worth it once you get used to it and they can mulch the grass to look the same as it would if you bagged it

I agree with everyone who mentioned a quick 36. The super fox model would probably be perfect for you. It would cut your cutting time down and you would not have to empty the bagger as much.

The Hustler Mini Fastrak has a 36" and a 42" with a simple rear bagger. I have on for mine..
