Quality Pro Lan Care

Hello all,
I am a 25 year old police officer in my state. I have 11 residential yards and 2 commercial yards. I am about to sign two more commercial yards this week. I run a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado (which is for sale on here), with a 5x12 open trailer. My trailer carries a 48" Gravely Hydraulic deck zero turn, an Echo trimmer, a Husquvarna back pack blower and a back pack sprayer. I used to have a 40" Gravely WB (also for sale on here), but I don't use it that much and it's much easier to carry just the ZT.

I have many friends in the business who have helped me to date get up and running and continue to help me through the process. I am grateful for these friends and sites like this one and it's many pros and amatures alike that give advice an opinions. My name is Ryan and I have a wife and a beatiful 1 yr old son who give me the power to come home every day after shift. My weekends is my time to cut grass and relieve my stress.

I am currently in the market for another zero turn. Don't want to spend too much, but i cant get my Gravely in one of my customers gates. A 44" would be perfect. I don't like using the WB because it's too long to swing around in the back yard. Any advice on what to go with would be appreciated. And thank you in advance for any help.

Ryan
