    When I'm not in the office @ lawnsite, I maintain a network of
    16 lawns...largest being 5 acres. Traditionally, I've run Deere
    & ExMark. I'm now looking into the Ferris 500IS. Price $ 4995.00

    most commercials have thicker decks, kohler or kawi motors instead of briggs, larger wheel pumps, rops, and a few other options not found on residentials. sometimes you will get into hydraulic decks or assist decks, but not for $5000

    You can get a residential Hustler MFT (36") for 3800-4k new and it will still give any other mower (comparable) out a run for it's money and still have a few bucks to play with. Thats the exact mower I started out with and I never once had an issue with it.

    Look for the new Hustler fasttrack Super Duty range. They have some awesome mowers for getting into the commercial mowing business.
