    I currently have a job that allows me to have some free time. I have picked up 6-8 side accounts some are 1/4 acre lots and 2 of them are 1 acre lots. I plan on picking up more accounts in the near future and hopefully growing this into a full time business so do I buy the quick 44 with a step saver for around $3400 or do I buy a Cub Cadet Recon 48 for $6000. Please help- thanks

    Better measure your gates first at these accounts to determine what size mower you can fit in their backyards.

    I don't have any gates as of yet but if I do I can handle the back with a 21- thanks. Any more suggestions?

    can anyone tell me if the quick can be as efficient as the recon? If it can then the price point justifies the quick

    I would start with something on the cheap side the quick fits that description and its backed by a great company.
