    I am looking for a 21" lawn mower with casters. I have a lawn I mow and they just put up a new fence and I can no longer get in the backyard to mow. There are a lot of curves and i need the casters to manuver it. Looking for one in the 300-500$ range.

    I know Ariens makes several models of push mower with casters.

    I believe John Deere also offers a 21"er with casters, too.

    I have the Scotts/Ariens mower from HD I use at my house. going on three years with no problems. If the land is even slightly sloped. you will not like the casters. it seems to take more effort to keep it in a straight line. the one or two passes that I need to to with are curvy are a mild annoyance. I sw the JD 21" with casters at HD the other day...

    On a side note. I hope you did raise the customers rate, now thet you need to get a diffent peice of equipment and it will take you longer...

    I hate fences...even if that have a big enough gate for a 52-36" mower its a lot trim work.
