1. would the new 61'' Turf Tiger be overkill for 1/4 acre to 1acre size yards,if not, what size and style mower would you use and why? if you like the 61", what mowers would you use to compliment it? I really like this mower.

2. What's the best size trailer to use,for 61" mowers?

3.whats the best way(taxes/legally and insured),inc. or llc for me to put my teenage son on payroll

4.What's your favorite Scag dealer in Ga and why?

5.whats the best backpack blower to purchase?

I have one and use it on everything. But I don't know your area so don't know if it would work because of that.

Do you already have the mower? I can think of many things I could by for a teenager then a mower that he may not make back the money on.

1. I bought a 61" Scag in my second year in business. I use it on any lawn I can without a gate. If I had it to do over again, I probably would buy the same, but a 54" may have been smarter. I compliment this with a 36" walk behind which fits almost every gate. Out of 140 lawns, I may get my 21" push mower off the trailer for 8 lawns, and 5 of them are townhouses.

2. I have a 14 ft enclosed which fits everything nicely. Not cramped. Again, if I did it again, I'd probably go with a 16 ft.

3. Ask an accountant for your particular situation. I am an LLC, and have 3 employees.

4. I can tell you about my dealer in Maryland if it helps...

In N Ga a 48" is better because there are no flat yards. The bigger decks just don't do a good enough job I think. 44' to 48" is the best all around I think. I use a 36", 48" and a 52".

Well a 61" could be a starter as long as your gentle with it on the small yards. We have a 52, and our 36 perfectly compliments it as it can get into back yards with gates.

Now why would you buy the very top of the line for a little bitty yard:confused: The Freedom would handle that just fine and save you $5 grand.
