My advice (17 and fully insured and legal doing commercial and residential) is forget the Cub cadet WBH. Get rid of the rider ASAP and get a Exmark or scag walkbehind for 2500 on craigslist. Both Cubs will drive you crazy. I used a deere rider for the first time the other day because one of my customers wanted me to try it out. I have always used zero turns so I wanted to try it for fun. Man that think took a 40 acre field to turn it around. It was slow and had a poor cut.
RUN AWAY FROM RIDERS AND CHEAP WALKBEHINDS!
