    For a truly great engine in terms of raw horse power and undefiateball performance you want something with a liquid cooling system that delivers fuel via electronic injection, and runs on diesel... Now, if money were to be an issue, which I'm not saying it is, but if it were, I'd second that nod to Murray.

    Since when did any manufacturer build a diesel engine for a mower that is electronically controlled?

    Fiskars StaySharp Max 18 in. Push Reel Lawn Mower. No gas to buy, no engines to work on, ALL PROFITS!! Combined with the right bicycle trailer for transportation you could cut out insurance and vehicle gas too!

    Joking aside, i really like my Timemaster for my one day a week light use, so the Toro or Exmark pro version of that could be a good start.

    I had been looking at starting a lawn service for some time and had looked at many different mowers. One thing I started to notice was that people in my area that had been in business for any length of time either ran Kubota mowers or when it came time for them to get new equipment they bought Kubota. They are not cheap but they are tough.

    for years and years of long term service, the professional choice is walkers with ghs and exmarks mowers.
