Just starting out. I have about 10 properties already and just finished year with a sears 42 inch mower (plan to sell it). Dealer has a year in clearence on encore 36 belt drive for $1899. I beleive this is a great price, however he recommended the mini fastrak again. 42 inch for $3500 with kohler. 1. How quick will a 36 cut a yard with velke and is it worth buying a belt drive for flat properties. I do not have any hills yet. 2. Is the mini fastrak really designed for light commercial use. If so maybe it would hold up for a few years. 3. Most important, cAn I really gain that much extra speed from a 42 zero turn vs a 36 belt drive. I AM SORRY BUT I NEED HELP. I WOULD LOVE A HYDRO WALKBEHIND BUT CAN NOT SEE PAYING THAT MUCH FOR A MOWER TO START OUT WITH. THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THE HELP.
