42" JD residential (still love this mower), 52" Scag V-Ride, and a 21" MTD yard machine(green/yellow). Still use the JD as backup and the MTD goes out for every service.

Used to cut my grandparents yard with a 3hp something that you cranked the flywheel around with a handle then pushed it closed to start it. Remember those ?

JD 170 42" and a Sears 20" push.

JD bought 2003. Sears at least that old.

Used on own property, now using them for third year for business.
Hope to add a 36" WB this season. May up grade the JD to a to 48" deck. Cheaper to do that because a 48" ZTR will most likely have to wait till next year. Then I'll keep the JD as a back up.

I had a 44" Dixon with 18 or 19hp. Wouldn't cut anything taller than 6". NOT a good first mower experience.

yep, my neighbor had one when I was a kid. At the time I thought it was a good idea vs the pull rope that would break or not wind back up Seem to remember that mower having about a 1/4" thick deck on it too and was built like a tank.
