    Grass is wet 50% of the time, ruts easily, not much room to turn in the yards (they are all very small, .15 acre lots with a decent size house on them), not much room to alternate cutting directions, mower has to be under a 42 inch deck to get between houses, lightweight is a must (my 60" z's wont do it), they all have to me mulched, and there are 150 of them to do in four 10 hour days. Input please!

    Sounds like a lighter mower with wider tires will suit your situation best.

    Quickie 32
    Quick 36
    Quick 44

    I second that, a Quick 36" seems to be your best bet.

    Definatly a small rider. Everyone makes them now. I wouldnt want to do 150 houses with a stnader or quick36 or anything like that. I have a gravely, but the exmark and dixie, or for that matter toro look like nice mowers. They are all 34's so they will fit through any chain link gate as well.

    Wouldn't even a small commercial rider be more rut-prone than a WB?
