Don't want to hijack xclusive's thread just throwing in another opinion from a local guy, 5x8's small but if you already have access to it I would go ahead and use it until you out grow it. I'm using a 5x10 right now and it fits my 36" walkbehind and a push mower with a little extra space, but I only mow a couple days a week and do mainly hardscape/landscaping. Craigslist is definately the way to go though, especially this time of year when guys are closing up for good or looking to upgrade to something bigger during the offseason. One last thing, if you're planning on plowing commercial, it most likely won't be covered on your landscape gen. liablity insurance, I've got a seperate insurance policy for plowing

I guess it depends on the provider, what insurance company do you use if you dont mind me asking so I can look into their rates? I'd rather have everything under one policy if possible. PM me if you'd rather not say it on here
