I am saying it's more than possible to move away from a 21 all together, as shocking as that might sound to you...lol..cut quality, efficiency and cost of ownership are the things that matter to me when considering equipment. 21s can be beat on every single one of those fronts as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for all the info. I think I will just go with the 21" this season. I can get one out the door for 1100.00. The list price is 1099.00 so basically I'm not paying tax. That way it's paid for and as little as we use it, it should serve the purpose. We do have some accounts with pools and small areas of grass that you have to go down stairs to get to. So a 36" wouldn't work anyways. I would just hate to spend the money on a 21 and end up needing a 36". Tough decision but I think the 21" is the winner. Ill probably get the x series with the Kai motor, self propelled. I don't see the 100 more dollars for the blade brake even worth it. It's just one more thing to tear up. Thanks again

I started out with a 20" push and a 42" JD rider.

I want my next mower to be a 36" WB. Reason because of gate issues and steep grades. This will relegate 20" for for the smallest tight spots.

Then on the larger properties I can get them done faster using the 42" and the 36" at the same time.

I may even spend $1,000 to upgrade the JD rider and put on a 48" deck.
That is a lot less money then buying a new 48" mower.

let us know how long it lasts for you, especially those plastic wheels going up and down stairs.

if your getting along fine without a WB now than i would say you dont need one...no need to spend money that you dont have to, unless you find a real good deal on a used one

I don't think greenutah was trying to be an ass, just asking a question. That being said I don't think you have anything at all to worry about in terms of durability. There are a LOT of those units in use around here and I've not heard anything negative at all about them.
