If its just you flyin solo, you could probably get by with your Yoda for a bit until you are able to purchase something else to fit your needs. As for a mower, I've seen several used nice 48" walk behinds around my area for around $1500 or maybe a bit more. I have a 2007 Exmark Turf Tracer HP 48" and love it, only think I don't like about it is, most of my jobs are commercial clients with huge areas to mow and even with my other 52" ZTR running, I wish my walk behind was bigger, but I deal with what I've got for now...a 36" is a nice size for residentials(esp with gates) with not too big of yard, but soon as you might get into smaller commercial sized or larger residential's your going to wish you had a bigger deck...Just what I've learned from experience, even though you may not currently need a little bigger mower or whatever, if you can swallow the price some, get a bit bigger than you need at the and you'll be happy about it now and later when you might expand some. I made the mistake of buying a 6X12 trailer which sufficed for the time, but soon as I got the walk behind, its very crowded. Wish I would've gotten at least a 7x14 if not a 7x16.
