Start Up Mower

Starting a lawn service business shortly and have pretty much all the T's crossed and all the I's dotted. Last thing to do is buy a commercial mower. My concern is gate sizes. I have a (homeowner style) mower but for speeds sake, which size commercial mower fits through most homeowners gates? Any suggestions is appreciated.

any one of them that's smaller than the gate, just have to do some checking on whatever brand you want.

believe it or not my 52" fits thru every gate I have except for 3. If you have not many small gates around use a push for gated areas, if its to big dont take it. I would get a
48" to start.

A walk behind or self propelled push is useful for most gates. My 44" is too large for most gates.

I am thinking about a Wright Stander 36. Anyone use one could give a yay or nay? Keep in mind, it will be my only mower beside a 21"
