My point exactly. For something 5 or 10k sq feet I could see it, but bigger than that it's just not realistic. Most of my lawns are on 2 acre lots. Granted they're not all turf, but still, they're too big to realistically push mow.
Yeah, I'll start on my ball fields that I have to do. I only have 2 of them, should be done by Friday if I get started this morning. BUAHAHAHAHA

The bad thing with a push mower is once your customer sees you use it that is all they want to be used from then on.

Sorry! but the Customer isn't going to dictate what equipment I use to get the job done

most people realize you can't mow if the ground is wet or mushy...if they don't then you don't want them as a customer because they lack common sense

A decision we all deal with. Do your best not to get stuck or just say ok, im done. Thats if you have an account that forces you to mow or they will fire you. The destruction that could be created to get your mower "un-stuck" (from experence) be EXTREME, unless you have a winch or come-along on your truck with a long cable. Im dealing with the same thing here west and east of Minneapolis, wet ass swampy grass. Honestly thinking of putting a winch on my truck tomorrow.
