Hi, I started mowing this year as a summer job (I'm 16). I bought a used wb Scag belt drive 36'' 2003 model, advantage deck. I run an ECHO trimmer and blower as well. What is the best equipment (in value, initial cost, productivity) for me? I am comfortable with larger equipment but not sure if it's necessary. I don't have a lot of money to play around with to do it.... I currently run 8 lawns a week because during the school year I have to get them all done on the weekends... Is it worth it to buy larger machinery to do more? I also like it when the lawn is striped nicely... is there a better brand than this? My scag sometimes stripes, and sometimes it doesn't... Thanks for the advice!!!
