I usually recommend a hydro walk behind over a ZTR for guys starting out. They're very productive with a sulky and can actually be faster than a ZTR due to increased maneuverability. I have a 52 inch ZTR but my 48 inch hydro walk behind gets more use. I reserve the ZTR for the big open areas and for when I need to bag.

Walk behind is a lot more versatile...mowed many many yards with walk behinds ..start there and when you get a few really large properties maybe think zero turn too many guys try and start out with a rider,which they really don't need

Secure the accounts first. Thats the hard part. After you secure enough accounts to justify the equipment upgrade and then buy what you need.
How many guys do you see on here selling a mower because......

It is too small for the lawns I have
It is too large for the lawns I have
Or the worst is I bought a new mower and have no accounts now I have to sell my new mower.

Keep a couple things in mind when buying.
1. Dealer location
2. Dealer level of service
3. Can I get parts for what I am buying.
