    WTF are you smoking? I had a 33" Troy Build a few years back and hated it. First, you have to turn them by hand, second, I literally spent more time working on it than I did mowing with it. There is no way a 33" Troy Built could outperform an Exmark Metro.

    I drag around that 33 troy built too. I will swap it for an emark anyday.
    I am using the 48" or bigger most of the time, but that 33 is really not a commercial mower.

    I had a Troy bilt and it was good for what it was, but comparing it to a proper commercial walkbehind is a bit of a stretch. Nylon pulley's that explode when you nail something with the blades is very cheapy.

    I have a Cub Cadet 33" walk behind, which is about the same as a Troy built. Been running it for 5 seasons now but it is not used everyday. The only parts I have replaced is a selenoid and 2 belts. Still cuts as good as it did new. But is it a commercial unit nope but does a good job, leaves a nice stripe too. If I used it everyday, I would definately get a hydro commercial walkbehind or if I had employees using it. But, most of my lawns I can use a 60" ztr on them so the walkbehinds don't see much use.

    I also use a 33" Troy Bilt because it was all I could afford when I started full time LCO last spring. I use it 5 days per week. Did have a few little problems with it last year but overall it gives a decent cut & mulches well. Fits through all gates. The dealer had told me when I bought it that I would only use the 4th gear when travelling. That's the only gear I really use when cutting. Sometimes wish it would even go a little faster.
