    Im kind of having a problem deciding to get the 32" or 36" Metro. Now I know everyone will say get the 36" based on productivitiy but I have to deal with gates in my neighbourhood and I certainly don't want to have a piece of equipment that is usless. Any suggestions would help.

    I bought a 32 to start my company with and later found out it was a mistake. I should have bought a 48 and kept my push mower. Would have helped me in the long run. But if you have ALOT of back yards it might help you...........But probibly not. IMO

    I also started out with a single blade 32" walk behind. I would definately recommed the 36 w/two blades. In my experience, the two smaller blades do a better job of cutting and discharging the grass compared to the large single blade.
