WHAT WOULD YOU BUY?..... im goin to be doing residential lawns this coming season, each about 1/3 to 1/2 an acre.. i think 60" is too much.. i like 52"s... im also looking for a walk behind about 36 or wright's 36 stander.... mainly it seems as though exmark, toro, and (perhaps) the wright sentar are the best riders.... does exmark make the best walk behind??? whats the opinions on the other riders and wb's?? encore?? ferris?? JOHN DEERE???
what will give me the best quality cut... for those with the bigger riders, 48" plus, have you had any slack about bringing them on your customers lawns??... remember, im targeting $300k plus homes.. are thes customers more apt to complain about bigger mowers on their lawns???? does the wright stander (even though 52") look less intimidating to customers????
HELP! first big mower buy.. thank you.

Start out simple.
