Thanks for the replies! We do currently have a very dependable John Deere backpack blower and the top end Echo handheld blower. I'm just always looking to save time as I'm the only full time employee with two 7 hour work study kids and around 15 acres of campus + sports complex(soccer & softball).
Any thoughts on walk behinds with sulkies? I know my ground speed would decrease, but is their manueverabilty on par with the smaller ZTR's? I have no experience with them and I'm wondering if I should just cross them off my list and stick with smaller ride on ZTR's.
