Try the used equipment forum. Or a dealer near you.

My first piece of advice would be to work on your spelling & typing. ;-)
As far as your situation, would a 3'x8' sheet of plywood work for you?

Sweat it for one more year, and start saving and each week deposit your money.By the end of a season you could have a nice mower.

First thing I would do is buy a measuring wheel, surely you aren't cutting 8 1/2 acres with a 22" mower.

After reading cantoo's post, I reread what he wrote, I thought the same. It looks like (8) half acre lawns.

If you get a bigger mower, just carry a couple of 2x6's to the steps and lay them there like a ramp.
