I found a retired mechanic that fixes mowers and sells them. He probably has 200-300 mowers that he fixes and sells every year. I've got a newer 21" mower that I use for most of my residential accounts, but he has an older model Toro commercial in very good shape that he'll sell me for $200 and it started up on the first pull, seems to be in very good shape. I was thinking about buying an older model commercial 21" to mainly do scalping and then do my regular maintanence throughout the rest of the year with the newer mower. Do you think its worth having a mower just for scalping to give you a little more life out of the newer one? What are your thoughts? Its 60 degrees outside and the phone is already ringing off the hook. I know all of you are ready get out there, good luck to everyone!!!
