ZT - 54 or 60" you would be surprised how well you can get them into and out of small places.

Personally, I would choose a ztr or a stander. I really just don't care much for a walk behind and would be willing to spend they extra money to get something better.

Depends on th eproperties I was looking at. Probably go with a walk behind and a sulky first because most jobs here are relatively small. After a year or two I'd get a ztr. if I could get the bigger contracts. I'd bank the ztr money and not buy one until I had the contracts to justify the purchase.

if you're cutting hills the WB is a better choice. but other than that i'd take the ZTR

I'd pick a 52" Stander.

Im thinking about purchasing one in the spring.

If I had to choose one mower to start with , it would definitely be a 48-52" Stander...no doubt

I think walk behind... more affordable for starting business, better for smaller yards and hills (which I'm assuming is what most people get when they start out)
