Any of you guys using "60" inch Walkbehinds?

Just curious what percentage of the WB,s mowing are 60 in. It seems there's more of them than I thought.

I had one at one time but i think its overkill if your doing a normal residential yard. If you get one just make sure it has a rolller on the front of it.

Most mower designs have their place and time. I have a 61" Scag TT, but can't use it on some of the properties with large hills; especially if it's been raining alot. The weight of the TT tears everything up. On the other hand I would be quite comfortable using a 60" w/b in the same situation.

60" Walk Behind

Hello,
Yes, I own a 60" Walk Behind. It's a Lesco 21HP Kawasaki Hydro with Hydraulic brakes with sulky. The person that owned it before me was an extremist at everything he done so it has foam filled tires also. I actually put in the local swapper this week for sale, with a couple of other individual mowers for sale also. Give me a holler.
