    Hey everyone, this is my first big mower, it is a 48in WB, i got it used for under $1200, it is a Exmark Walk Behind Mower With Velke And Bagger. I am going to pick it up sometime this week hopefully... has anyone used one of these, how is it?

    i figured i couldnt go on much longer with my 21"'s and this looked like a good deal. what ya think?

    Also, thank you topgun landscaping for pointing the mower out to me :)

    Take it out in a parking lot the first time. and learn the controls and how to ride the sulky. Now those 20 lawns should take you 4 hours

    I love our 48", it does a great job mulching.

    well i cut about 5 lawns today, i only had 2 schulded but got 3 more accts as i was driving down a street. I used the new mower, it works great, but i think the blades need sharpening. Im not quite used to it, but im sure i will get the hang of it soon. It kind of makes cutting lawns fun. IMO. also, what do you guys recommend as far as blades go?
