Other than on tiny, tiny lawns, is there any real use for a 21" mower over, say, a 36"?
IMO not really, I only ran my 21 very little.There only 2 spots were I couldn't get my 48
36" won't fit through a lot of gates in my area. I'm probably going to pull the 36" off the truck and put a 32" on there to give the guys a break. They're using the 21" a lot lately, and on some fairly large back yards, because of the gate issue.
Also, if something is REALLY wet, I tell them to use teh 21" to minimize the turf damage they're going to cause.
I use a 21" a lot. Here there are a lot of old houses with small gates, where anything bigger just won't work. Then there are the hills, too steep and small for anything other than a 21". Gotta have it.
they come in handy for hills as stated above. i have one customer with a huge above ground septic sys. the 21 is the way to go for it
also the little islands in parking lots, sometimes lugging a 36 up each curb isnt practical.
